The OIT EPMO began in 2016 as the shared vision of former OIT Secretary Dr. Joanne Hale and the first EPMO Director, David Latham (now retired). The office was expanded in January 2017 to a cross-functional team of six Project Management (PM) and two Business Analyst (BA) professionals. Each staffing decision was carefully considered so that the EPMO would be able to provide state agencies with expertise in information technology (IT) infrastructure, software development and maintenance, IT operations, and business process management. It started small, but in just over a year and a half, the EPMO has picked up speed in both capability and workload.
