Guide to Project Delivery consists of five parts. Part 4 outlines appropriate standards of practice and procedures for the delivery of works by direct management. It assumes that the agency has committed to undertake works using a direct managed delivery model, and has access to a direct managed workforce with appropriate capability and support.

This part specifically covers the steps following the decision being made to deliver the project using a direct managed delivery model to final completion of the project and handover for ongoing operation and asset management. It details why and when to use a direct managed delivery model. Managing direct managed delivery is discussed from the point of view of the agency/owner, the direct management organisation (DMO), and the project manager responsible for the delivery of the project.

The specific matters which the project manager should take into account in the execution of the project works are also described.

In 2014 this part of the Guide was revised. As this part of the Guide deals with both construction and maintenance works, the title was changed to ‘Direct Management of Project Works’. Additionally, a number of minor edits have been made throughout to ensure alignment with the joint Austroads and APCC Building and Construction Procurement Guide – Principles and Options(AP-G92-14).
