Project & Portfolio Management (PPM)

The Project and Portfolio Management application is used by MSU IT to manage, plan, and allocate resources to university projects.

Overview of PPM

MSU IT employees use Project and Portfolio Management (PPM) for:

  • Weekly time entry
  • Capacity vs. demand planning and estimating
  • Calendar entry for four hours or more planned time off (e.g., vacation, training)
  • Project tracking
  • Submission of new project ideas for review

Project managers also use PPM to manage projects, document tasks and risks, and provide updates.

If you have questions about your project allocations, please talk with your manager. This includes if you think you should be allocated to a certain project.
