PMP Exam Prep Question of the Week

Every week we post PMP certification questions to help you prep for the exams.

Who is responsible for providing the financial resources for the project?

  1. The customer
  2. Sponsor (can also be the customer)
  3. Project manager
  4. Functional Manager

The answer is 2.

The customer is the entity paying for the project, while the sponsor is responsible for releasing the “working budget” for the project. The “working budget” is what is being described by the term “financial resources” in the question. Keep in mind that the sponsor on an internal project can also be the customer.
