The A&M System has developed a TAC 216 Companion Guide to help members be compliant with TAC 216. The Companion Guide helps you define a project, it provides a method for classifying projects based on their complexity and risk, and it outlines minimum project management requirements needed to complete any size project. The Companion Guide also outlines how to meet TAC 216 requirements for project governance, assessment and reporting.
