Level: Basic
Venue: 2019 AACE International Conference & Expo, June 16-19, 2019, New Orleans, LA, USA

Abstract: In 2010, a major investor owned electric utility requested a survey of utility companies and to provide benchmarked information regarding project controls for capital projects, minor projects, plant projects, and turn arounds. This survey was organized into three major subject areas:
  1. responsibility of project controls team;
  2. company’s organizational structure for project controls; and
  3. tools used by the project controls team and related training of project controls staff.

After presentation of this utility benchmark information at the 2010 AACE conference in Anaheim, California, this survey information was provided to AACE International’s Utility and Energy Special Interest Group (U&E SIG). Beginning in 2017, the AACE U&E SIG conducted a follow-up survey relating to this information.
