Project Management and Evaluation
The Office of Project Management and Evaluation provides coordinated guidance, leadership, training, and tools to Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy (EERE) management and the field in the area of active project management. PME is also charged with providing integrated risk management and oversight of EERE work at numerous field sites. This includes activities ranging from procurement and project management to monitoring and auditing.
PME, located at DOE headquarters, is an important link between EERE and these field elements:
- The Golden Field Office
- National Energy Technology Laboratory
- Las Vegas Site Office
- Oak Ridge National Laboratory
- Other DOE Operations Offices
What We Do
PME's mission is to ensure effective EERE operations between headquarters and the field, through leadership, coordination, and collaboration.
PME's mission also includes the coordination of American Recovery and Reinvestment Act reports, oversight, and risk management across EERE's programs. Performance monitoring of Recovery Act projects within EERE has been an ongoing effort. To learn more about performance monitoring, you can download this information sheet.
PME supports EERE in the following areas:
- Data collection, analysis, and reporting
- Project monitoring and performance management
- Project Management Training and Certification
- Risk management and audit resolution
- Audit liaison, follow-up, and resolution
- Environmental stewardship
- Pro-active internal review of EERE Operations
- Enterprise assurance
A critical element of PME is continual improvement, and the Office will regularly evaluate its performance (both in regular activities and Recovery Act support) to determine best practices it can apply internally and across EERE. To learn more about best practices uncovered and lessons learned while monitoring EERE's portfolio of projects, please visit EERE's Bulletin Board of Lessons Learned.
