Organization: NR
Publication Date: 2 September 2017
Status: active
Page Count: 19
scope:

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

This standard is part of the P3M framework and relates to 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.

NOTE 1: IR01, Investment Regulations, is available on Connect (IR01 is an internal document available to staff within Network Rail only and can be accessed via the following hyperlink or can be made available externally on request to P3M@networkrail.co.uk ):

NOTE 3: The Level of Control (LoC) value does not affect the applicability of this standard.

Purpose

The purpose of this standard is to define and mandate the processes for controlling individual project stages from initial concept to close out. It forms part of the Project, Programme and Portfolio (P3M) framework, within which its objectives are to:

a) demonstrate that appropriate attention is given to the delivery of the projects products;

b) keep risk and issues under control;

c) deliver the products as part of the authorised stage to agreed quality within the agreed time and cost constraints; and

d) provide a standardised and controlled governance framework within the organisation.

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.
