Project Scoping is the process of defining project objectives, developing the Project Delivery Plan, and defining important elements of the project (scope, schedule, & budget), to help keep the project on-track to successfully achieve objectives.  The Scoping Milestone is achieved when the Project Delivery Plan is approved by the Resident Engineer.  Endorsement by the Project Team is recommended but not required


The following are the ten sections to be included in the Preconstruction Project Delivery Plan (PDP) for the project.

Risk Management:

The Risk Management Plan provides the framework to identify, analyze, plan response for, and monitor and control project risks. All projects, regardless of size or complexity, have a risk component. Risks can present both threats and opportunities. The complexity and visibility of a project coupled with the potential impacts of risks will determine the appropriate risk management strategy.

 Roles and Responsibilities:

The Roles & Responsibilities Plan identifies who is on the team and what they are going to contribute to completing the project. It documents the decision-making hierarchy for the project and the appropriate assignment of roles and responsibilities needed to deliver the project.

 Scope Management:

Scope management is the process of fully defining what needs to be accomplished to deliver a project and how to manage the work/deliverables needed to achieve it.

 Cost Management:

Cost management planning provides a consistent approach to estimating, managing and controlling costs to ensure that a project is completed within the approved budget.

 Schedule Management:

The Schedule Management Plan describes the processes used to ensure the timely completion of the project. The Schedule Management Plan describes the process for developing and managing the project schedule.

 Change Management:

The Change Management Plan outlines the process for identifying, documenting, evaluating, approving, and implementing project changes. It defines the “who, what, why, when, where, how and how much” needed to analyze the impact of a change and to control the project.

 Procurement Management:

The Procurement Management Plan addresses the processes to acquire services or products from outside the project team.

 Communication Management:

Communications Management is the process that will be used to ensure consistent project information is distributed in a timely manner to the people who need it, in an appropriate format.

 Quality Management:

Quality Management is the process that the Project Manager and project team will use to help ensure that the desired quality is achieved in design and deliverables.

 Transition to Construction Plan:

The Transition to Construction Plan is the strategy for completing/closing all preconstruction activities and handing over the project to the Project Engineer.
