Hi everyone, I'm currently reapplying to take the PMP exam after my initial application was audited and rejected. I've followed the advice of the PMI staff and have reworked my new application accordingly. I do however have some questions. My company does a lot of feasibility studies for clients; that is the feasibility report is the deliverable for the project itself, to be presented to the client at the completion of the project. My concern is that PMI will reject my application again solely based on the idea that a feasibility report is listed as part of the initial decision making process whether to even go ahead with a proposed project. Anyone have any input on this?

I've included my projects below, I'd appreciate it if anyone has any advice, either on the nature of the reporting or on the descriptions themselves, which were also called into question on the original application and since worked up.

Objective was to recruit new ESL teachers
IN: understand BC, create measurable objectives, get initial stakeholder expectations & constraints
PL: develop PM plan, gain acceptance of plan, estimate project time & cost
EX: held meetings w/ team members & consultants, oversaw creation of deliverables, improved processes used in previous projects
MC: measured & analyzed ongoing performance, request changes with upper mgmt, update LL
CL: confirm all work done to req.s, hand off recruits for training, get feedback from upper mgmt

Objective was successful.

Terry,

Your situation is complex; you'd be best served by directly contacting PMI's customer support network and addressing the issue with them. No need to risk a second audit failure when you can the info straight from the horse's mouth.
