Maryland is First in the Nation to Reach Recovery and Reinvestment Act Milestone

States are required to meet certain federal guidelines and requirements to be eligible to use recovery funds allocated to the State. On March 23rd, Maryland reached this milestone. According to the State of Maryland Governor's website, "Phase I of Maryland’s ARRA funded highway projects totals more than $224 million and has the potential to support up to 10,000 jobs".

On the top of President Obama's priorities are business integrity and fiscal responsibility. Vice President Biden has been assigned this responsibility. This will drive the need for certified project managers and professionals by contractors to ensure best compliance possible with sound business practices and accountability standards.

This is a great time to get PMP certified for professionals interested in pursuing recovery act projects. I am offering several workshops soon.
