  4. Risk reports
  5. Timesheet data
  6. PMO help desk calls (incoming)
  7. Troubled projects
  8. Training
  9. Strategic objectives for fiscal year
  10. List of Business assets


  1. Project Portfolio (e.g. PO calls trade summary report)
  2. Resource portfolio (e.g. Headcount report)
  3. Asset Portfolio
