This standard specifies the principles to be adopted for, and the roles and responsibilities associated with, initiating 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

b) are carried out in a high street environment, e.g. car park developments.

Purpose

The purpose of this standard is to mandate that all projects define core project management activities for the management of the project and assessment of its overall success.

The outputs produced in accordance with this standard give a source of reference to resources joining the project and other stakeholders with regards to how the project is being managed.

The approach is based on best practice within industries that undertake major infrastructure projects and practice recommended by the major professional bodies. These include the Office of Government Commerce (OGC), the Association of Project Management (APM) and the Chartered Institute of Building (CIOB).

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