The implementation processes described in this chapter cover several of the main elements associated with management of project implementation and operations. However, there are numerous other aspects of the process, each of which must be carefully managed to ensure project success. These include resource procurement and management of the relationships with the various utilities serving the facility, environmental regulation compliance and project permitting, and management of a host of financial, legal, and contractual matters. Many of these subjects are covered in previous chapters and should be reviewed within the context of project implementation.

Management responsibility should be assigned for each of the major functional areas associated with project implementation, including design, construction, OM&R, training, M&V, legal/contractual, financial, environmental, and resource procurement. With the traditionally bid plan and specification system, the team leaders for each of these functional areas may reside in several different companies. When projects are implemented by an ESCo, all or most of these team leaders may reside in one firm and will have reporting responsibility to one overall project director. In either case, the host facility must have its own management team in place to ensure project success. Each of these functional areas must be understood by the host facility's management team and carefully reviewed as the process unfolds. Independent consultants may be engaged to supplement the knowledge base of the management team as appropriate. Still, the owner or a senior manager should have a clear understanding of the facility's mission at the host facility must be dedicated to the process and and overall objectives as they relate to the project at hand.
