Robbins-Gioia LLC, Alexandria, Va., has won a one-year contract to train Agriculture Department personnel in program management, the company announced Monday. The contract's value was not disclosed.
Under terms of the contract, the company will provide a five-week course on program management, capital planning and investment control. It will also offer insight into the Office of Management and Budget Exhibit 300 requirements for process change, the company said. OMB is encouraging agencies to do a better job completing projects on time and within budgets.
"If we teach participants the core [program management] knowledge they need, they will be poised to meet OMB requirements," said Jennifer Stanford, Robbins-Gioia's director of professional development. "Good [program management] practices are tied to good reporting."
The course will be open to other agency personnel as well.
