  • Cost Control: Monitor project costs against the budget, tracking expenditures and identifying any deviations. Implement strategies to keep the project within budget while maintaining quality standards.
  • Variation and Change Management: Assess and quantify any changes or variations to the original project scope. Evaluate the impact of these changes on the project budget and timeline, and negotiate adjustments with contractors.
