CSC-2381 – Schedule & Cost Management of Sub-Contracts by Ali Hagire
Emrani and Syd Daneshyar, CCP

Sub-contractors play a crucial role towards achieving project objectives. The
project management team needs to ensure that sub-contractors will finish
their work on time and on budget with minimal changes. To achieve these
goals a project-wide Code of Accounts (COA) must be put in place which also
applies to sub-contractors. In this paper, the process of subcontract
management is examined from the pre-award (RFP) stage to post-award
subcontract administration, from the perspective of project controls. The
concept of Governing Quantities for cost and Construction Work Packages for
the schedule will be introduced. Highlights by author, Hagire Emrani of


PS-2975 - A Practical Guide to Successful Program
Scheduling by Chris Carson, CEP, DRMP, PSP, FAACE, Vishu Divvela and Gino Napuri, EVP

While practitioners recognize that there is a difference between program and project scheduling, all too often,
program scheduling is treated the same as a large project. A fully integrated program schedule,
encompassing all projects’ scope, schedules, updated, and analyzed as a single schedule, is an extremely
valuable and effective tool, but done poorly, will allow serious negative ramifications. This paper will
demonstrate a practical approach to successful program scheduling. Highlights by Beatrice Nasui from


EST-2801 – Understanding Estimate Accuracy by Larry Dysert, CCP CEP DRMP

Based on an AACE Recommended Practice, this presentation will walk through the identification of an
estimate as a range of potential values, discuss the typical shape of the probability distribution associated
with the estimate range, identify the concept of the estimate contingency, and identify the elements required
to convey information about the estimate. Does adding contingency increase the accuracy of the estimate?
Come find out. Highlights by Les McMullan, FAACE from Hatch.
