We have just migrated over from Project Central to CA PPM, where in Project Central, the PM could create Local Resources on their projects.
Definition of a Local Resource - a resource which is used to identify who is working on a Task, but is not being monitored by by the organisation as they are 'local' to just that project. These generally are an external vendor.
Though there can be a formal process to create these Resources and/or Company, the value at this time is not justified as the PMO does not have the capacity to undertake, and they are not being monitored (at this time) across the organisation.
How are others handling this in CA PPM?
