Lead Project Manager
The Lead Project Manager is a senior level Project Manager with responsibilities for coordinating the efforts of several Project Managers, either on one mammoth project, or for large numbers of projects typically at a Document Center. The Lead Project Manager will usually work out of a Government-funded Document Center, although there may be situations in which the Lead Project Manager works out of a Contractor-provided facility. Extraordinarily large, multi-facility "Document Centers" may require more than one such Lead Project Manager; small Document Centers may not require any Lead Project Managers. The Lead Project Manager generally reports directly to the Division Contract Director or to a Deputy. The Lead Project Manager directs and coordinates all Document Center resources, including subordinate Project Manager staff and other staff resources. In Document Centers which support more than one case, the Lead Project Manager must carry his/her own caseload, in addition to performing lead/coordinating duties. In addition to Project Manager responsibilities, the Lead Project Manager consults with the COR and Government Case Managers concerning overall Document Center operations, scheduling, work assignments, staffing, progress reporting, security, etc. The Lead Project Manager is responsible for overall quality assurance and timeliness of delivery for all work performed out of the Document Center. The Lead Project Manager also performs overall coordinating functions with other Contractor components.
