Enthalpy, after 25 years as an independent owner management group, has developed several systems to help the performance in asset delivery. These systems have been audited and reviewed thoroughly by third parties and found to be best practices and in certain areas leading practices.
These systems are well known to resource and infrastructure companies as well as leading financial institutions and most engineering contractors worldwide. They are based upon years of practices, research, studies and feedback.
The aim is to provide simplicity and consistency that will lead to better predictability and competitiveness. When all coupled together it reduces the surprises and increases the value to shareholders.
The systems are designed to investigate, recommend and execute capital investments. They incorporate the business objectives; provide a common language; are traceable; and, mitigate risks.
Policies, Manuals and Minimum Standards are detailed; ensuring that content, quality and accuracy are well defined for each stage. To increase efficiency several toolkits have been developed that include templates, benchmarks, examples and checklists.
Built up through 30 years of “real world experience”, our CIS enables clients to understand the risks associated with a project investment and apply proven, rigorous processes to manage those risks.
The System draws upon a Six Phase approach – from scoping to closure – to optimise our client’s investment choices and derive sustainable assets and businesses.
The objective of the Project Controls System is to maintain effective control of studies and projects and to provide motivation for Study and Project management teams to successfully complete studies and deliver projects which meet the overall objective stated above. The Project Controls System provides the processes necessary for achieving these objectives.
The objectives will only be achieved if the Project Controls are well defined and implemented. The Enthalpy Project Controls System requires a set of Minimum Standards and Procedures to be adopted and incorporated into the Study or Project contractor procedures, applied by Enthalpy personnel in managing the Study or Project contractor, and included in the procedures for activities managed by Enthalpy directly.
The Contracts and Procurement System (CPS) mandates the approach that should be adopted for implementation of contracting strategies, followed by the tendering, award and administration of contracts. It provides the basis for investigating, evaluating, recommending and managing the contractual process.
All activities related to preparation, calling and assessment of tenders and the award and administration of contracts shall be carried out in accordance with the policies of the CPS
The CPS is made up of:
