The Project Plan defines the plans and procedures of an enterprise for the management and conduct by
that enterprise of a fully integrated program in satisfaction of project objectives and requirements.
Project requirements may be established by the enterprise or may be established under a contract
between the enterprise and a customer external to the enterprise.
The Project Plan, including or supplemented by subordinate plans, is used to provide direction and
guidance to the management team and their subordinate teams/individuals responsible for conduct of
the work. The Project Plan may also be used to provide visibility to a customer of a tenderer's or
contractor's project planning and processes.
The content of the Project Plan is intended to be responsive to contract requirements, if any, but is
not, itself intended to be invoked contractually.
The Project Plan is subordinate to and derives its authority from a contract, directive, project brief or
similar document. This Data Item Description (DID) may be cited contractually in a Statement of
Requirement (SOR), Statement of Work (SOW), a Contract Data Requirements List (CDRL), or
within a standard invoked by a SOR or SOW.
The Project Plan may exist in partial satisfaction of the requirements of process standards such as ISO
9001, which may be invoked contractually or by enterprise management decision.
This Project Plan DID is consistent with the requirements of the PRINCE 2 project management methodology.
