The Nuts and Bolts: Development and Implementation 43 Methods: The following is a list of techniques that should be used to communicate and col- laborate with Partners during this step: Collaborate in meetings and/or via collaboration technology with the Leadership Team and CMT to Discuss the draft ACP. Collaborate in meetings and/or via collaboration technology with the Leadership Team, CMT and Approving Authorities to Reach consensus and approve the draft ACP. Communicate in meetings and in writing with the Agency on The approved ACP for implementation. Communicate using press releases and website postings with the general public on The approved ACP for informational purposes. Product: The following is a list of written documents, processes, data, events, and/or other benefits that will be produced during this step: The ACP Funding and Financial Plan. The multi-year ACP. Result: The following is the result an agency can expect in terms of targets achieved, benefits realized and value added when an agency follows the recommended step outlined above: 1. The agency publishes a multi-year ACP that all Stakeholders agree with, support and are will- ing to implement. Implementation Phase The second phase of the Nuts and Bolts component of the CACP process is Implementation, which is the road map for project execution, from project planning and definition through design, construction and ultimately operation. This section outlines the procedures recom- mended for the successful execution of projects. Defining and standardizing project implemen- tation functions and procedures as described herein are valuable because an agency can Repeat good project delivery methods and techniques every time, regardless of the department or individual managing the project. Make use of lessons learned from other project delivery experiences and improve the processes and procedures over time. Reduce project delivery time because agency staff will not have to create or define a new process every time a project is implemented. Reduce project costs by increasing efficiency and effectiveness. Improve and standardize quality. The five steps of the Implementation Phase described in this section are 1) Project Planning and Definition: Define in detail the scope, cost, schedule, funding source and operating impact of the projects. 2) Design: Design the project to meet the owner's needs within the scope, cost and schedule con- straints developed during the project definition phase, such that it meets the agency's goals and objectives. 3) Construction: Build the project to meet the owner's needs within the scope, cost and sched- ule developed in the design step, such that it meets the agency's goals and objectives. 4) Project Closeout and Evaluation: Quickly and effectively close out the project and evaluate the performance of the staff and departments involved in the planning, design and/or construc- tion of a project/facility.
