This Standard describes the process that business unit’s shall use to identify, evaluate, and approve a Project
Change. Project Change occurs when a factor is imposed on a project that is outside of the Project Manager’s
control. This Standard is not intended to replace existing processes for managing variances that occur
throughout the life of the project (i.e., when there is no change to the approved Project Plan). This Standard
does not require a Project Manager to apply the Project Change Control process for the use of contingency

with respect the management of funding as it applies to The City`s capital project management. It will
also ensure compliance with The City`s policies and procedures including all regulatory approvals and
