Guidelines for space/asset projects
Project teams—General information
Project Teams are an internal vehicle for the communication of pertinent and essential information
relative to the development, implementation and ongoing activities of a project.
The purpose of these guidelines is to provide clarity to the concept of project teams and the roles and
responsibilities of various project team members.
The size and make-up of project teams is determined by the Project Leader (or Project Manager in the
case of Other Government Departments (OGD) projects) based on the size, complexity and type of
real property project. Project team position titles may also vary; however, the following descriptions
represent typical position titles and primary roles and responsibilities.
Public Services and Procurement Canada team members
Project Leader
The Project Leader represents the interests of the Real Property Branch or the key sponsor on the
project team. For space projects, the Project Leader is typically the Accommodation Manager/Client
Accommodation Service Advisor (CASA). For asset projects in a crown owned building where Public
Services and Procurement Canada (PSPC) is the custodian, the Project Leader is typically the Property
Manager. For Major Crown Projects, Project Directors represent the Project Leader. Finally,
for OGD asset projects, the client department representative acts as the project leader.
They are accountable for all aspects of the project and are responsible to lead the project through
the entire National Project Management System (NPMS) lifecycle from the Inception Stage to the

Appendix A—Project team meetings
Note
Scalability statement: The guidelines presented in this section are "ideal" and are not intended to be
applied verbatim for every project. The level of detail and effort used is directly proportionate to the
size and complexity of the individual project and/or the project team.
Meeting defined: Similar to the above statement, the term "meeting" can mean many project team
members sitting around a boardroom table, or it can mean an electronic dialogue recorded
between two members of the project team – It all depends on the scalability required.
The project team start-up meeting (see Appendix B—Project Team Start-up Meeting Agenda) should
be held at the Inception Stage, or as soon as possible after the receipt of the client requirements or
the identification of a potential project. Project team members' participation should be determined
based on the size, scope, cost and complexity of the project.
Subsequent project team progress meetings and project delivery meetings (see Appendix C—Project
Team Progress Meeting Agenda) should be held during other stages/phases of project delivery. Care
should be taken to ensure that project team member participation at these meetings is appropriate to
the purpose of the meeting at the relevant stage/phase of the project.
Project teams should endeavor to meet at the following stages/phases of the project:
Project inception – Project Leader: Typical chair
1. After finalization and sign off of the statement of requirements (SoR).
Project identification – Project Leader: Typical chair
1. Prior to finalization and sign off of the preliminary project plan
2. Prior to finalization and sign off of the preliminary project complexity and risk assessment for
projects over $1M
3. Prior to finalization and sign off of the feasibility report and/or investment analysis report (IAR).
Project delivery – Project Manager: Typical chair
1. After Lease award (if applicable); or prior to finalization and sign off of the project
management plan
2. Monthly to review scope, schedule and budget during fit-up
3. Regularly throughout project implementation
4. At project completion
