IT Project Management

Project Management

The Justice Management Institute (JMI) provides project management services to justice system stakeholders for IT development projects.  The JMI project management team can provide third-party oversight or direct owner representation.  Large development projects require close monitoring of contract compliance, schedules, milestones and deliverables and change management.

JMI utilizes a rigorous methodology for managing IT projects including document and release management, regular strategic and detailed reporting cycles, a project library and cost controls.

IT infrastructure project management. JMI offers project management for infrastructure planning and implementation projects.  Typically, IT infrastructure is installed early in the fitout process and then intensively as the owner prepares for occupancy and migration of existing network and user hardware and software.  In courthouses, unique challenges include almost-zero downtime, with fast-track installation and testing processes.
