Also known as: Project Management (EPMO)
Available to: Faculty & Staff

Service Summary

Enterprise Project Management Online (EPMO) is an online tool for ITS project management and tracking needs. It automates the Project Management Framework by providing a scheduling interface with Microsoft Project, team lists, project details, templates, a document repository, and a collaborative workspace for project teams and automated workflow processes.

Only ITS personnel may create and manage projects; other Mason personnel may participate as team members.

All users of the George Mason University EPMO must adhere to University Policy Number 1310: University Information Technology Project Management and University Policy Number 1301: Responsible Use of Computing.

How to Get this Service

General EPMO information is available to all Mason users; however, user accounts must be created by the Project Management Office (PMO) prior to accessing project specific information. To request an EPMO account, complete the EPMO Account Request form.

There is no charge for this service.

Microsoft Internet Explorer is the preferred browser for full functionality. A wired on-campus connection or an active VPN connection for wireless on-campus and all off-campus connections is necessary to use EPMO. EPMO scheduled maintenance windows are Thursdays from 9 to 11 p.m.

The IT Project Management Framework is a standardized, objective methodology that assists in identifying, classifying, documenting, and managing IT projects. Project Management is not “one-size fits all” nor is the Mason PM Framework. The Framework is designed to scale to the size and complexity of a project, thus ensuring that all projects carry out suitable project management.
