This report presents information on how the need for software assurance affects software project management. The impact of software assurance on the tasks and concerns of a project manager are addressed, first in terms of discipline, then in terms of life cycle. It includes a discussion of the business case for justifying software assurance activities, the impact of software assurance on project management tasks and concerns involved in planning, and on project monitoring and tracking during development. The additional activities and project management concerns are identified and presented as they arise with each phase of a development life cycle, and as a work breakdown structure. This report also contains resources and pointers to enable the reader to continue to track the state of the art, beyond this static document.
