I have the hous of Project Manager experience needed from the past eight years, but they are only around 600 over the amount required because of reduced projects available in the recent years.
However, I have been a Program Manager on Federal IT projects and have major hours through 2002 - just before the cut-off period. Can I report any of the earlier projects on my application for historical support?
No need. The system will ignore all the hours that are outside of the 8 years and PMI is not interested in "historical" data. So only input what is current. And 600 above is sufficient.
Just make sure to talk to your contact people before you submit your application. Give them a chance to review what you have put down before they are asked to verify it during an audit. (it's just risk management... nothing else.)
