Project controls are the data gathering, management and analytical processes used to predict, understand and conclusively influence the time and cost outcomes of a project or program; through the communication of information in formats that assist effective management and decision taking. This encompasses all stages of a project or program’s lifecycle from the initial estimating needed to ‘size’ a proposed project, through to reflective learning and the forensic analysis needed to understand the causes of failure. Project Controls encompass the people, processes and tools used to plan, manage and mitigate cost and schedule issues and any risk events that may impact a project. In other words, Project Control is essentially equivalent to the project management process stripped of its facilitating sub-processes for safety, quality, organizational, behavioural, and communications management.

The new democratic dispensation now requires this view to change somewhat, largely due to social pressures by non-governmental organizations, civil society and governmental initiatives.
At RPS Africa, social development and empowerment issues are at the heart of our operations. This comes naturally, perhaps because of our nature as a Black Economic Empowerment Corporation. We are convinced that it is not only desirable, but also indeed necessary to create wealth while solving social problems.
RPS Africa has taken a conscious decision to actively encourage community involvement in all our activities. This way, skills will be developed, employment created and economic activities stimulated in the underdeveloped communities.
Our aim is to promote the Community Co-ordination Committees concept and in the following brief discussions, we indicate how these would work in project management:
