About the PMS

The Presidential Management Staff (PMS) became "the PMS" as it known today on 08 July 1976,

the PMS was given a fresh mandate to serve the Presidency as the President's primary technical arm. (EO 130, 30 January 1987)

for providing technical assistance and advice to the President in exercising
overall management of the development process (Executive Order No. 130
