Published January 2017
Effective from January 2017

This RICS guidance note sets out how the role of the commercial manager is both expanding and deepening in the fast evolving field of infrastructure. It describes how the commercial manager should bring professional skill and influence through the infrastructure project lifecycle and demonstrates the importance of understanding and translating the investment case into disciplined processes; recognising the impact of scale and the uniqueness of engineering not seen elsewhere in general practice, and tailoring the approach to cost, risk and engaging the supply chain.
