All municipal ITS projects are coordinated by the Project Management Office (PMO), which took up operations at Hamburger Hochbahn AG in January 2017. Tasked with providing an overview of the projects and developments within the ITS Strategy, the PMO schedules and organises overarching projects, initiates new ideas, manages communication between various public and private bodies, and supports ITS projects as a whole. Additionally, the PMO manages ITS-related subsidies (procurement, counselling and applications), is a point of contact for third parties (businesses and scientific institutions), and even represents the city of Hamburg on a number of national and international boards and stakeholder groups.
Further services to which the PMO contributes in coordination 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, maintenance of 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.
