Reimbursement for PM Policy Training

The IT Project Management Policy for UC Berkeley will take effect Jan. 1, 2017. The Office of the CIO is providing $10,000 per year for three years to help offset project management expenses that departments may incur while preparing their staff to meet the requirements of the policy.


Please complete the IT PM Policy Training Reimbursement Request to apply for funds from the Office of the CIO to be reimbursed for project management training to help you meet the requirements for the IT Project Management Policy.

Conditions for Funding

Applicants may receive no more than $800 from the training fund per year, and campus units may receive no more than $2,000 per year collectively for all of their staff to complete project management training. The applicant and department will be responsible for signing up for the course, paying for it, and submitting a request for reimbursement including documentation demonstrating completion of the course work. 

Review & Selection

Applications will be reviewed by the Technology Program Office (TPO) at the end of each month. Funding is for staff who manage projects but don’t meet the policy’s qualifications to manage projects or are trying to qualify to manage larger projects. The applicants will be notified about their application status by email no later than 10 business days of the following month.

Since available training funds are limited, preference will be given to applicants who have managed projects in the past three years that meet the conditions of the policy and those who will manage projects in the next two years that meet the conditions of the policy.


Applicants will be notified by email about the status of their application within 10 business days of the following month in which their application was submitted. If the application has been approved, the applicant and their supervisor will receive an email confirming the amount of funding that will be transferred to the department upon the applicant’s successful completion of the specified course.

Verifying Completion of Training

Proof of completion and receipt for payment of the course should be mailed to Jon Conhaim at within two months of completing the course.

Reimbursement for Training Expenses

Approved applicants will be reimbursed for training expenses upon successful completion of their course. The applicant must submit proof that they have successfully completed the course, and then funding for the approved amount will be transferred to the specified campus chartstring.
