5. Review of City Capital Project Management Process
An organizational project management review was recommended by Acting City Manager, Walter Babicz, during the April 26, 2021 Council meeting. See item D.5 in the Council Agenda for the report and information on project management from the BC Auditor General for Local Government:
This recommendation was approved by Council. The City also issued a news release following Council’s approval:
On October 4, 2021, Council approved the Organizational Capital Project Management Policy. The policy represents the latest step in a two-phase approach to enhance project governance and give Council a better understanding of City project lifecycle management and practices.
The policy framework Council endorsed includes process maps, process descriptions, responsibility assignments, and other tools to make City project delivery more efficient, consistent, and cost-effective. The next steps will involve creating an operating manual and training City staff to apply the new principles to capital programs and projects. Council will receive a project completion update once phase two ends later this year in December.
