PMI Announces PMIAA Passed by the U.S. Senate 
The bill was sent to former President Barack Obama for signature and enactment. This legislation will make improvements to program and project management policy across the U.S. government. It is a landmark achievement for our profession, and it would not be possible without the support of members like you. PMI has been working since 2014 on the development and passage of the PMIAA with Sen. Joni Ernst (R-IA), Sen. Heidi Heitkamp (D-ND) and Sen. Bob Casey (D-PA). For more information on the passage of the PMIAA, read the official press release.
