Project Management Office ITS

Transport ITS Project Management

Pulling all the strings: The Project Management Office is responsible for coordinating all city-wide ITS projects.​​​​​​​

ITS Project Management Office

All municipal ITS projects are coordinated by the Project Management Office (PMO) that took up operations at Hamburger Hochbahn AG in January 2017. It is the task of the PMO to provide an  overview of the projects and the development within the ITS Strategy. Scheduling and organising overarching projects as well as initiating new ideas, managing the communication between different public and private bodies and supporting the projects as a whole also belong to the office’s many tasks. Further important fields of action include the management of subsidies (procurement, counselling and applications) as well as contacting third parties (businesses and scientific institutions).
In addition, the PMO represents the city of Hamburg in a number of national and international boards and stakeholder groups.
Further services that the PMO contributes in correspondence with the BWVI State Agency for Economy, Transport and Innovation include:

  • The implementation of overarching project management
  • Regular reporting via project plans, status updates and briefings, a project map and escalation management in the event of obstacles
  • The organisation and preparation of inter-institutional meetings (steering committees, workgroups, field of action meetings, workshops) in the context of the ITS Strategy
  • Technology and innovation monitoring

The PMO leads, supervises and evaluates the dialogue with business representatives, information centres and research facilities concerning ITS topics and projects. If applicable, first project ideas are devised and submitted to potential responsible bodies within the administration.
