King County – DNRP – Project Management and Controls Manual Development


In 2010, the County Executive issued Executive Order No. 16764 establishing the Capital Project Management Work Group (CPMWG) in response to a State Audit Report and recommendations for certain standardization for capital construction projects. Among the deliverables of the CPMWG was development of a standardized table of contents and standard elements to be included in all project management manuals (PMM). Each County Implementing Agency is responsible for developing of a project management manual that meets the standards established and addresses the requirements of the unique and individual capital programs implemented across the County.


In July 2011, P&M was selected as the Project Management Consultant to develop Project Management & Controls Manual for the King County Department of Natural Resources and Parks (DNRP). The DNRP consists of the Solid Waste (SWD), Water and Land Resources (WLRD), Parks and Recreation (PRD) and Wastewater Treatment Divisions (WTD).

P&M developed Capital Project Management Manual(s) for the several Divisions that were consistent and compliant with King County policies, applicable regulations and followed project management best practices of the Project Management Institute (PMI) and the Association for the Advancement of Cost Engineers (AACE).
