Project execution plan PEP

A project execution plan (PEP, sometimes referred to as a 'project management plan or PMP' - see below) sets out the strategy for managing a project.

It describes who does what and how, defining the policies, procedures and priorities that will be adopted. It may include strategies in relation to items outside of the scope of the main contract, as the client's overall project might include multiple contracts for the supply of goods and services, both from external organisations and from within the client organisation itself, such as operation and maintenance contracts, the supply of equipment, relocation, and so on.

Project execution plans are generally prepared by the client's project director if they have sufficient experience, or on their behalf by a project manager. On a construction management contract or a management contract they may then be taken on and developed by the construction manager or management contractor.

They may, in the first instance, be based on information contained in the project business case and the strategic brief, but might then be developed to include:

They are likely to be presented as a report, however, where possible, information and requirements should be scheduled in a database or spreadsheet format that will be easy to expand and will be easy to use to test whether proposals satisfy requirements later in the project

The progress of the project should be assessed against the project execution plan throughout the project and the project execution plan should be amended and developed as necessary.
