The NEC suite of contracts has gained APM Body of Knowledge approval. 

The NEC Engineering and Construction Contract (ECC), Term Service Contract (TSC) and Professional Services Contract (PSC) are now approved further reading for the APM Body of Knowledge.

APM Body of Knowledge Approved publications are titles specifically selected by the project profession as providing essential next-steps in the understanding of topics, contained with the APM Body of Knowledge 6th edition. The titles can support students in their studies, provide insight for those new to the discipline and offer further depth to experienced professionals looking to improve their practice. 

Rekha Thawrani, general manager for NEC, said: Were proud to announce this new partnership with the Association for Project Management. The main objective of this relationship is to stimulate good project management across the industry, promote collaborative working and effective risk allocation. This signifies the next step in an ongoing relationship between APM and NEC.

He added: Initial feedback from across the industry is that its a welcomed addition to have this new partnership, as it makes it easier to put contracts in place.

The announcement follows the launch of the first Approved title, The Gower Handbook of Project Management Fifth Edition , which is cited as a core text relevant to most, if not all, of the sections in the APM Body of Knowledge 6th edition.

The full range of Approved titles, below, are available to buy from Turpin.
