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
