Critical Path Method Schedule and Risk Management for Architects / Engineers (A/E): Volume 2 - Guidelines for Preparation of Risk Management  


This document is intended to provide guidance to the Architect/Engineer (A/E) in the development of a Risk Management Plan (RMP) during the design phase of Medical Center Major New Facilities, Additions and Renovations projects by the United States Veterans Affairs (VA). The VA oversees complex projects throughout the country which require careful planning and execution during the evolution of the projects.

The purpose of the Risk Management Plan (RMP) is to identify, analyze, manage and control all risks that could have adverse impact to VA’s project budget and schedule throughout all the phases of the project’s life cycle. It also provides a useful road map that can be used by the A/E and the project team to assist them in completing the project successfully
