United States Environmental Protection Agency: EPA Doubles Project Management Maturity, Improves Scheduling by Up to 50 Percent
The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) enforces environmental regulations passed by the U.S. Congress. The U.S. EPA Office of Water wanted to do a better job of finishing software development projects on time and within budget. It quickly deployed Microsoft Project Server 2010 by hosting it with Project Hosts and engaged Innovative-e to customize it to the EPA's needs. With the new solution, the Office of Water has doubled its project management maturity level, increased scheduling accuracy by 50 percent, and could save up to U.S. $1.9 million in productivity gains.
