TANNER James and Oakton have formed a strategic partner- ship to assist agencies in res- ponding to the Department of Finance and Deregulation's requirement for agencies to use P3M3TM to assess capability to commission, manage and realise benefits from ICT-enabled investment. The Oakton and Tanner Ja- mes partnership is extremely well placed and experienced to assist agencies. Having introduced PRINCE2® and MSP® to Australia, and with a long history in Federal Govern- ment, the companies are the leading suppliers of P3M3TM, PRINCE2® and MSP® services. Tanner James and Oakton are both P3M3TM accredited consul- ting organisations and assisted agencies in piloting P3M3TM. Following the SIGB's endorse- ment of P3M3TM, and the Depart- ment of Finance's advice to FMA agencies in November 2009, they have been engaged to help several agencies undertake P3M3TM assessments and capa- bility improvement planning. The driver for FMA agencies to conduct a P3M3TM assessment is one of Sir Peter Gershon's primary recommendations -- that federal agencies improve their capability to commission, manage and realise benefits from ICT-enabled projects. Gershon also recommended that agency capability be included as one of the factors considered in the two-pass investment approval process for both New Policy Proposals (NPPs) and internally funded agency projects. The govern- ment's confidence as to whether agencies have sufficient capa- bility to deliver target benefits, within budget, will be demon- strated through an agency's P3M3TM maturity level and capa- bility improvement plan. Some agencies are uncertain about how to proceed and what will be required to conduct a P3M3 assessment, and how this should inform capability improvement planning. A key concern is what is meant by "ICT-enabled", which influences the focus of the assessment and raises questions as to who should be involved. Is this a matter for the departmental executive? Does it need the involvement of SES officers? Can it be readily handled by the CIO with the support of the Project Management Office? These are all common questions. Tanner James and Oakton have assisted senior agency staff in understanding P3M3TM and how their agency will address such questions. Undertaking a P3M3 assessment is not a simple compliance requirement, nor is it a panacea for improving agency-wide capability. Their experience shows that P3M3TM needs to be applied in a way that is cognisant of an agency's core functions so that the assessment findings are a useful catalyst for improving the delivery capa- bility of ICT-enabled initiatives. As members of the Depart- ment of Finance's P3M3TM Maturity Assessment Consultan- cy Services Panel, Oakton and Tanner James can directly assist with the requirement to com- plete an independently- validated P3M3TM assessment and capability improvement plan by December 2010.
