In France, the MOP law (Public Project Management) makes provision for 3 levels of project management support.
Project Management Support - PMS
Project Management Support can be either sectoral or global (specialised in one or more specific fields : technical, legal, administrative, financial).
Conduct of operations - COP
The project owner retains full authority but requests assistance in the conduct of operations, which in turn calls for project management skills.
Delegated project management - mandate
The delegated project manager acts in the name of and on behalf of the mandator. In this capacity, he represents the mandator by way of delegation in all actions taken within the framework of project management. It goes without saying that the mandator retains the authority to make decisions.
SCP is able to operate at all three levels of public project management support, and also conducts similar missions abroad, in accordance with local legislation.
