Project


A unique effort having defined start and end points undertaken to create a product, facility, or system. Built on interdependent activities planned to meet a common objective, a project focuses on attaining or completing a deliverable within a predetermined cost, schedule and technical scope baseline. Projects include planning and execution of construction, assembly, renovation, modification, environmental restoration, decontamination and decommissioning, large capital equipment, and technology development activities. A project is not constrained to any specific element of the budget structure (e.g., operating expense).

A project has a defined start and end point with specific objectives that, when attained, signify completion thus achieving a specific goal and creating a unique product, service, or result. Built on interdependent activities planned to meet a common objective, a project focuses on attaining or completing a deliverable within a predetermined cost, schedule, and technical scope.

A unique effort that supports a program mission having defined points for starting and ending, undertaken to create a product, facility, or system and containing interdependent activities planned to meet a common objective or mission. A project is a basic building block (in relation to a program) that is individually planned, approved, and managed. A project is not constrained to any specific element of the budget structure (e.g., operating expense, plant, or capital equipment). Projects include planning and execution of construction, assembly, renovation, modification, environmental restoration, decontamination and decommissioning, large capital equipment, and technology development activities. Work that does not include the above elements-e.g., basic research, grants, ordinary repairs, maintenance, and operation of facilities-are not considered projects. However, these activities can be managed as projects.

A unique major effort within a program that has firmly scheduled beginning, intermediate, and ending date milestones; prescribed performance requirements; prescribed costs; and close management, planning, and control. The project is the basic building block in relation to a program that is individually planned, approved, and managed. A project is not constrained to any specific element of the budget structure (e.g., operating expense or plant and capital equipment). Construction, if required, is part of the total project. Authorized, and at least partially appropriated, projects will be divided into three categories: major system acquisitions, major projects, and other projects.
