About the PPM tool
The Project Portfolio Management (PPM) tool (also referred to as PPM or Clarity PPM) is intended to enhance statewide governance as implemented under the leadership of the State Chief Information Officer. Oregon executive branch agencies, boards and commissions are required (unless exempted by statute) to use this tool for oversight project reporting. The PPM tool is the system of record for the oversight process. Enterprise-wide IT project reporting to the legislature, the governor’s office, and the public is based on data in PPM so it is important that this information is accurate and up to date.
Full project management functionality is available to agencies who decide to use the tool beyond oversight project reporting to EIS P3. If your agency is interested in using additional PPM functionality like timesheets or resource capacity planning please work with the PPM administrators to make those features available.
Access to PPM
State employees or authorized contractors who are responsible for submitting documentation for the oversight process will need full edit rights in PPM. View only accounts are also available.
If you have an existing account, you can log in with your OR number here:
You will experience some application issues in the Internet Explorer browser, so it is best to use PPM in another browser like Chrome, Firefox, or Edge Chromium.
Forgot your password?
PPM does not have a way for users to reset their own password at this time, so you will need to contact the PPM Administrators to request a password reset.
New account request (view-only)
To request access to PPM with view-only rights, users can email both PPM Administrators with their OR number. Training is not required at this time.
New account request (full edit access)

Step 1: Request access to test system
