For those of you who are part of this group that are in an RMO separate of a PMO, do you partner with your PMO using the Project Resource Management process from the PMI institute? IE, in order to fill a request for a resource the pm needs to 1: Have a plan (hopefully that the customer agrees upon), 2: estimate activity resources 3: Acquire Resources 4) Develop Team 5) manage team 6) control resources.
Then we provide the best option that matches the given criteria. Once the request has been filled, we then expect the PM to follow up with the resource and coordinate their involvement with the rest of the team.
I guess you could roughly say our RMO owns step 3 (and a little of 4), but the rest is on the PM/PMO.
