Recommendation RemarksPMAB did not meet in FY 2017, nor does it have any committee members. The Charter expired on 12/05/2016. PMAB did not issue any formal recommendations in FY 2014. The committee did provide substantial informal advice and guidance in key areas of customer service, in support of the PMC members working on the customer service Cross-Agency Priority goal. PMAB's guidance in helping government officials to better leverage technology to improve the customer experience was very impactful. In addition, PMAB's feedback on a nascent awards and recognition program for top customer service providers in government led to major revisions in the program.

Outcome CommentPMAB continues to oversee the work completed in previous fiscal years, monitoring the progress achieved by the Federal Government in implementing the recommendations delivered. During FY 2015, the first set of President's Customer Service Awards were given out- an effort deriving from recommendations made by the PMAB. Additionally, PMAB members offered strategic guidance and recommendations to agencies as it relates to their employee engagement strategies, enhancement to the Strategic Sourcing, the OMB FedStat process and implementation of the Federal Information Technology Acquisition Reform Act.Number Of Grants Recommended0
Cost Savings*More Than $10,000,001Dollar Value Of Grants Recommended$0.00
Cost Savings CommentWhile the PMAB did not issue formal recommendations in FY 2015, cost savings from their recommendations in FY 2011 and FY 2012 are still being realized. Specifically, the FY 2011 recommendations on IT portfolio management continue to be implemented as part of the PortfolioStat program being used by all major federal agencies to re-scope or terminate struggling IT projects. And the FY 2012 recommendations on strategic sourcing continue to be implemented government-wide, leading to significant cost savings through aggregated purchasing of various product and service categories across Federal agencies.The Real Property effort has also contributed to extreme cost savings. PMAB recommendations helped to shape OMB guidance with the Freeze the Footprint initiative. Through consolidation of existing federal office space or being more strategic with leasing space, cost savings have been seen as the cost per square foot declines.Grants Review CommentNA
