Program Management

SCi’s Program Management covers Program and Project Management, Architect and Engineer, and Subcontractor Management. Our practice is based on the Project Management Institute’s (PMI) Project Management Book of Knowledge (PMBOK), ISO 9001:2008 requirements, our understanding of industry PM standards, and our customer’s environment. Our policies, processes, and procedures facilitate and ensure lasting project success for our customers, balancing the triad of project scope, timelines, and cost, while managing and mitigating risks, assuring quality, and ensuring the highest return for our clients on their investments. We use a Total Quality Management (TQM) approach where each process step is performed to the best quality to support the next process step in the chain. Our Quality Management practices are governed by ISO 9001:2008 requirements. We implement processes for program-wide proactive Risk Management through diligent Planning, Risk Identification, Analysis, Mitigation and Monitoring of controls with the specific objective of increasing probability of Program & Project success for our clients while reducing any risks to a minimum.

SCi Subcontractor Management

In addition to providing overall project management, SCi provides management of subcontractors and suppliers, to the same standards we utilize in our Program management.

All subcontractor managers report to SCi PM. All acquisition activities will be coordinated and approved by the SCi PM, who is responsible for performing all product and workmanship acceptance activities. Any major project decisions, including scope change, issue and conflict resolution, final product/workmanship acceptance, and change control monitoring is the responsibility of the SCi PM, and communication across the team is driven by the Program Management Plan. We monitor work with daily calls and site visits, as well as formal weekly project status meeting. Weekly status reports from the subcontract managers to the SCi PM will be used to identify issues, monitor risks, and trigger necessary interactions with the subcontractor and suppliers. Subcontractor performance metrics will include but are not limited to:

    • Quantities of material delivered, installed, and operational
    • Time - planned and actual duration between milestones
    • Cost - planned and actual expenditures to date
    • Defects - number of defects found, open, and closed; defect origin and classification
    • Status - percent of requirements implemented and verified; satisfaction of performance or other quality goals.
