Scope, Schedule and Budget
The agreed upon and authorized scope, schedule and budget during Design Development must be adhered to. The Project Manager will work with the Design Team during the Design Development phase to keep scope in line with the initial approval plus any changes incorporated during Preliminary Design. Any changes to the agreed upon and authorized scope of the project must be approved by the Project Manager with all consequences for schedule and budget understood and accepted by the project funding source. As changes in the scope and schedule of a project will impact budget, an estimate will be prepared at the end of the Design Development phase to verify that the project remains within budget. The budget must be reconciled with scope prior to proceeding with the next phase of design.
