P3M3®™ Assessments for the Department of Immigration and Citizenship are Completed

blueVisions completes the Portfolio, Programme and Project Management Maturity Model (P3M3®™) for Department of Immigration and Citizenship.

The objective of the Department is to “build Australia’s future through the well-managed movement and settlement of people”. Since its establishment in 1945, the Department has managed the arrival and settlement in Australia of about 7.2 million migrants from 200 countries, including about 775,000 refugees under humanitarian programs. It has more than 9500 staff, including about 1000 locally engaged staff based at Australian diplomatic missions overseas.

The Australian Government takes its humanitarian responsibilities very seriously and Australia’s offshore Humanitarian Program continues to rank in the top three humanitarian resettlement programs in the world, alongside the United States and Canada.

The P3M3®™ assessments conducted by blueVisions in May and June 2013 included a review of 21 staff in various roles across the portfolio, programme, and project management submodels.
