PROJECT CONTROLS

Project controls are the data gathering, management and analytical processes used to predict, understand and conclusively influence the time and cost outcomes of a project or program; through the communication of information in formats that assist effective management and decision taking. This encompasses all stages of a project or program’s lifecycle from the initial estimating needed to ‘size’ a proposed project, through to reflective learning and the forensic analysis needed to understand the causes of failure. Project Controls encompass the people, processes and tools used to plan, manage and mitigate cost and schedule issues and any risk events that may impact a project. In other words, Project Control is essentially equivalent to the project management process stripped of its facilitating sub-processes for safety, quality, organizational, behavioural, and communications management. Project Controls discipline encompasses: Project strategy, undertaking planning and methods studies to help the PM optimise future outcomes; Scheduling including development, updating and maintenance; Cost estimation, cost engineering/control and value engineering; Risk management, including maintaining the risk register and risk analysis/assessment; Earned Value Management and Earned Schedule, including WBS, OBS and other breakdown structures; Document control; Forensic Assessment for required diagnosis of schedule and cost; Supplier performance measurement / oversight; The element of a project management methodology that integrate these disciplines both within the ‘controls’ domain and with other project management functions;

COMMUNITY DEVELOPMENT AND EMPOWERMENT INITIATIVES
Traditionally, businesses have in the main, concerned themselves with profit maximisation with scant regard to social issues like
skills, training, empowerment and employment creation. The new democratic dispensation now requires this view to change
somewhat, largely due to social pressures by non-governmental organizations, civil society and governmental initiatives.
At RPS Ilangabi, social development and empowerment issues are at the heart of our operations. This comes naturally, perhaps
because of our nature as a Black Economic Empowerment Corporation. We are convinced that it is not only desirable, but also
indeed necessary to create wealth while solving social problems.
RPS Ilangabi has taken a conscious decision to actively encourage community involvement in all our activities. This way, skills will
be developed, employment created and economic activities stimulated in the underdeveloped communities.
Our aim is to promote the Community Co-ordination Committees concept and in the following brief discussions, we indicate
how these would work in project management:
All our projects, as far as is possible and in consultation with client needs, would have to be designed and implemented in
such a way that they are labour intensive
Equipment and materials should be provided so that they do not act as barriers for the small community based
contractors
As far as possible, all community-based projects should have a training component so that previous experience and skills
do not deter the small contractors
Project documentation should be as simple as possible to enable the inexperienced contractors and labourers to do the work
FACILITIES MANAGEMENT
Management of all Institutional Electrical Services including Planning, Procurement, Installation, Repair and Maintenance
Management of all Institutional Services
Demand Side Management for Electrical Power for Institutions
Monitoring Energy Utilisation Patterns to ensure Efficiency and Optimisation
TELECOMMUNICATIONS
Guidance to clients on options to meet telecommunications needs effectively
Optimisation of networks for providers
