What are Project Controls

Helping PwC UK to Integrate, Centralize, Consolidate and Deliver

PwC UK

PwC UK is part of the overall PwC network of firms that operate in 157 countries and comprised of over 208,000 people who are committed to delivering quality in assurance, advisory and tax services.

“From a control perspective, quite often you approve a project, you want to make sure it’s delivering on time, on budget and delivering the outcomes that you want it to. From PwC’s perspective, we wanted to have the regular check-in – to understand from a control perspective: are projects on track? Are they spending to budget? Have you the resources to deliver? That control piece is really important – to have that oversight and insight so we can make interventions to help.”
