Judging and Recognition

Judging Criteria

The selection of the recipient(s) for the award will be done by a panel of knowledgeable industrial and academic professionals recommended by the leadership of the former PMI Design-Procurement-Construction Specific Interest Group (DPC SIG) and approved by the PMI Educational Foundation.

 The panel will recommend the award for the paper which best meets the following criteria:

  • The paper advances the PMBOK® Guide in the field of design, procurement and/or construction by providing a useful contribution to the engineering and construction industry.
  • In general, the paper should present a pragmatic approach to engineering and construction issues.

The paper will be judged on the basis of originality and innovation, without being inconsistent with the PMBOK® Guide. The paper may also include discussion of unusual conditions, issues and/or challenges that required special management action and performance.

Recognition of Recipients

The recipient of the award receives $1000 (US) and prominent publicity at the awards ceremony of the North America Congress as well as publicity in PMI Today and the DPC newsletter.
