Including clear contractor requirements in the Invitation to Tender to ensure proper planning and physical progress measurement. - Project Cost Estimating - Developing Cost Estimates throughout all stages of the project, documenting the estimate basis and applying appropriate estimating methods.

Developing and managing forecasts by preparing budgets, tracking allocation of funds, measuring progress, controlling change and managing UAP. - Project Management of Change - Managing the holistic project process to document and control changes to the project scope and plan (including cost and schedule) while interfacing with all project disciplines and appropriate project management processes. - Project Information Management - Defining the framework for managing information and information technology on the project including project data management, document management, applications/infrastructure and information handover to Operations. - FC&A and Commercial Interfaces - Understanding the interfaces with Financial Control and Accounting (FC&A), Tax, Audit, Finance and the Commercial team and the services they provide to the project and to the Client group. Ensuring the information gathered and controlled by Project Services effectively addresses the needs of the FC&A and Commercial team. - PSCM Interfaces - Including appropriate project controls requirements in Invitations to Tender, so that costs, physical progress measurement and performance can be effectively measured and reported.
