Project Certification Templates & Guidance

The Project Certification Committee (PCC) evaluates project readiness and ensures that projects satisfy criteria established by the DoIT Cabinet Secretary-State Chief Information Officer (CIO).  New Mexico Administrative Code 1.12.9 states that PCC applies to certification of information technology projects undertaken by executive agencies meeting one or more of the following criteria in order for IT project funds to be released in a phased manner, regardless of the source of funds: project is required to undergo phased certifications as a result of the appropriation or grant; project is a subsequent or interrelated project to a previously certified project; project cost is equal to or in excess of $100,000.00; project is one deemed appropriate by the DoIT Cabinet Secretary, who is also the State CIO.
