Approval document

Archived Content

The National Project Management System has been replaced by Project Navigator effective October 15, 2021. Therefore, this page has been archived and will be taken down in 2024.


Approval document (AD) refers generically to the primary deliverable required to be put forward in an effort to seek effective project approval (EPA). This document should confirm that all available project information is reflective of the current state of the project/product, and that all original project objectives (approved originally at PPA) can be achieved. In some cases (for example), a revised investment analysis report (IAR) is used as the AD; for project which require Treasury Board Approval, a Treasury Board Submission is required. The specific format for approval documents will vary according to the type of project delivery method, and project value.
