The OSI Strategic Plan includes a goal to develop repeatable, standardized best practices for consistent use across all OSI projects to ensure project success for our program sponsors and the people we serve. In keeping with that goal, OSI has identified roles and responsibilities for a Project Management Core Team for three major phases of the project life cycle.



  • Establish a standard project organization structure for justifying the resources and funding for new and continuing projects.
  •  Provide a consistent acquisition pattern for the vendor community.
  • More efficient use of resources both in projects and centralized services.
  •  Justification for resources/positions in project approval documents/budgets.
  •  Requirements for Acquisitions documents.
  •  Task descriptions for duty statements.

Roles and responsibilities may be performed by state staff, contractor staff, or a combination of both, depending on a project's needs. The following instructions provide direction on how to incorporate information from these matrices in the appropriate project document (e.g. approval, acquisition, hiring).
