This standard specifies the principles to be adopted for, and the roles and responsibilities associated with, starting a project as part of the GRIP project delivery framework.

This standard is part of the P3M framework and relates to NR/L1/INI/P3M/100 and NR/L2/INI/P3M/101. It applies to all projects and programmes that require Investment Authority, as defined within IR01, Investment Regulations, and:

a) enhance or renew the operational railway; and / or

Purpose

This standard forms part of the Network Rail P3M framework.

The purpose of the Network Rail P3M Framework is to:

a) include all core project and programme management governance and guidance in a single framework;

b) provide consistency amongst the component parts; and

c) provide an easier to understand framework for our project and programme management professionals.

This standard is one of a suite of level 3 standards within the Network Rail P3M framework that articulate the six core processes to be undertaken whilst delivering a project:

a) leading a project;

b) starting a project;

c) initiating a project;

d) managing a stage boundary;

e) controlling a project; and

f) closing a project.

The overall purpose of this standard is to record the activities to be undertaken when leading development on behalf of a Sponsor. This is in accordance with the Clienting Principles.

Implementation of this standard will reduce the reputational and financial risk related to the delivery of complex projects.
