Examination Objectives

The objectives of reviewing development, acquisition, and maintenance activities are to identify weaknesses or risks that could negatively impact an organization, to identify entities whose condition or performance requires special supervisory attention, and to subsequently effect corrective action.

Examiners should conduct risk-focused reviews that assess the overall effectiveness of an organization's project management standards, procedures, and controls. Examiners should not expect organizations to employ elaborate project management techniques in all situations. However, organizations should employ project management standards, procedures, and controls commensurate with the characteristics and risks of their development, acquisition, and maintenance projects.
