Your Contract Enshrines Your Project Scope Management

Project Scope Management in the construction industry is enshrined in a legally binding Head Contract with the client. Constructions companies then look to their Project Software to help them manage any changes in this scope.

Budget Phase

In Muli, Project Scope Management is initially dealt with in the Budgetary phase where all elements having a cost, quality or verification impact on a project are identified. Individual projects are then managed using a flexible framework that can accept additional items with a quality or cost aspect. 


The current project's framework should incorporate the company's previous knowledge of risks - “things” that may happen that will have an impact upon the projects scope. Muli  terms these “Risk2Dos” and by assigning Risk2Dos to elements of the project, allowances for risk can be included in the final forecast cost of the project.

Scope Changes

As the project unfolds there will be changes in scope that need to be managed. These  originate when the client or subcontractor requests changes to the scope of works or contract documents. To manage these Muli has adopted a framework of:

  • Ballpark Variations – raised once a change in scope of works is known
  • Submitted Variation – when the scope of works is quantified, a firm $amount is submitted for client  approval 
  • Approved Variation – after the client approval is received

Effective Project Scope Management will result in meaningful reports during the life of the project across all of the project management phases and a better relationship with the client and subcontractors generally.
