Top 3 Ways to keep your PMO on Track

The best time to start thinking about winning your re-compete? The day you win the first award.  Keeping your PMO on track from the first day will keep your competition at arm’s length and will help ensure that your Government client has only good things to say about your performance.

Here are just three ways that iSite can help you keep your PMO on track as you manage your contract tasks.

  1. Workflows

Smart workflows keep your systems and steps moving forward.  There are assigned responsibility, defined actions, and specific steps. In a solid workflow, there is no worry about a missed action and there is redundancy built in so there is no unforeseen delay.

 

Using workflows will help you show progress and will help you engage in a smart way with your Government clients.

 

  1. Eliminate Data Delay

iSite is a neutral system that allows appropriate users to access data they need in order to do their jobs in an efficient and smart way. By pushing data into iSite, your systems of record are not impacted, your team in charge of maintaining your systems of record don’t have to be sidetracked in order to respond to data requests and appropriate users have instant access to the data they need in order to answer client questions and manage their tasks.

  1. Capture and Review Historical Data

Improving performance is a great goal, but unless you have a tool that allows you to capture and evaluate historical past performance you are not using data to make improvement decisions. By taking advantage of one system to manage your tasks you are setting your team up for success when it comes to critical post-mortem conversations.

Are you paying for your employees’ restless nights?

A recent Robert Wood Johnson Foundation report found a third of Americans get less sleep than the recommended seven hours a night. Another survey by Accountemps, an accounting services firm, put that number at nearly 75 percent in March. Bill Driscoll, Accountemps’ regional president in the greater Boston area, says some sleepy accountants even admitted it caused them to make costly mistakes.”One person deleted a project that took 1,000 hours to put together,” Driscoll says. “Another person missed a decimal point on an estimated payment and the client overpaid by $1 million.

 

Did those statistics jolt you awake?

Unfortunately, we cannot be there to tuck your folks into bed and make sure they get their full 8 hours of sleep. We can let you know that automation of processes can reduce potential errors and make it easy to uncover them when they do happen.

Using a Contract Management tool will allow you to create workflows, set funding alerts, maintain version control, and stay ahead of risk and variance analysis.

Go ahead, finish watching that late night movie, read another chapter in your book, say yes to just one more round; your contract management system has your back.
