Project Governance and Controls Symposium (PGCS) 2015

The Project Governance and Controls Symposium (PGCS) 2015 will be held on 6-7 May 2015 at the Australian Defence Force Academy (ADFA) thanks to the continued platinum sponsorship provided by the University of New South Wales Canberra.

The PGCS is the only annual project governance, controls and management event held in Australia. It has a unique focus on the project governance and control needs of the Australian Federal Government from the perspectives of Government agencies, Industry and Academia. The Symposium is focused towards public sector projects and seeks to engage with Defence/DMO and other large departments because they have they have the largest, longest running and most nationally significant projects in Australia.

The PGC Symposium also differs significantly to those run by other organisations.  While it does not ignore the soft skills (they are a critical part of governance),  the focus is on the quantitative project control techniques that are essential to providing a clear and objective status of where a project is truly at – particularly for major capital acquisition projects – and how this information supported effective governance.

The PGCS is supported by the Australian Institute for Project Management (AIPM), and a range of other project management bodies.
