Executive Steering Committee

PSSRP's Executive Steering Committee is a body designed to support both the Bureau Business Sponsors and the Program Office Manager as projects evolve from concept to conclusion. The Committee also offers a unified, cross-bureau voice to the City Council, provided through one Council member acting as a champion for the PSSRP. 

The decision domain for the Executive Steering Committee is dependent on the phase of the projects within the portfolio. ESC decisions include enterprise design strategy, changes to project go-live dates, scope changes, budget recommendations to Council, and any policy issues that have significant impact on other projects.

The Executive Steering Committee voting members are made up of Bureau Directors, or their designee, that have operational functions served by the PSSRP, including the:

  • Chief of Portland Police.
  • Chief of Portland Fire and Rescue.
  • Director of the Portland Bureau of Emergency Management.
  • City's Chief Technology Officer.
  • Director of the Bureau of Emergency Communications.
  • Two citizen representatives.

Additionally, other City and non-City representatives serve an advisory role to the PSSRP, and participate in ESC meetings. They include but are not limited to the:

  • Ctiy's Chief Administrative Officer.
  • City's Chief Procurement Officer.
  • External Quality Assurance group.

These members, along with the PSSRP Program Office Manager and the employees who make up the PSSRP, help shape the future of Portland's public safety systems.
