CPM will work in close partnership with ITD, which plays a lead role in the Fund’s transformation and broader IT-intensive capital agenda, together with the departments that sponsor individual programs.

The Portfolio Officer will support the financial reporting and value tracking for IT-intensive capital projects, assist with managing the portfolio-level benefits register, and prepare monthly portfolio-level reports under the guidance of the CPM Chief and Deputy.
