    • Annexes of the NPMS Directive for Real Property Projects were updated to specify that approval of revised deliverables is required at the same level of authority as the one needed for the original document.

  • For Real Property Project users:
    • A new section on Specialized Areas was added to include the matters of interest for the PWGSC Real Property context that are not covered in the standard Project Management Institute (PMI) knowledge areas for construction projects. This section includes the NPMS Procedure on Managing Projects for Heritage Properties, and the Aboriginal Consultation and Accommodation (duty to consult).
    • The Product Turn-over (PTO) page and Close Out Document (COD) have been updated to reflect that:
      • For Asset Project funded by PWGSC in crown-owned building: PTO is the Certificate of Substantial Performance (Interim).
      • For OGD Asset Project: PTO is the Certificate of Substantial Performance + OGD Client Acceptance Letter.
      • For Space Project: PTO is the Interim Certificate of Completion of Lessee's Improvements
        • For Lease Projects, the client acceptance is the Occupancy Instrument (OI).
        • For Crown Projects, the OI is tenant acceptance and the sign off on the COD by the Project Leader is the client acceptance that the project is complete.
