From GAPPS website:

The GAPPS Program Manager Framework consists of

  • A detailed approach to differentiating three levels of program manager based upon program management complexity.
  • Eight units of performance based competency standards for the role of program manager.
  • A description of six types of program manager based on which of the eight units apply.
  • Supporting material to aid in the application of the standards.
From GAPPS website:

The GAPPS Project Manager standard is written in the format of a Performance Based Competency Standard. This is a particular form of standard that aims to address two key questions;

  • What is usually done in this occupation, profession, or role by competent performers?
  • What standard of performance is usually considered acceptable to infer competence?
