International Cost Engineering Council Mission The mission of ICEC is to promote cooperation between cost management and project management societies worldwide for their mutual wellbeing and that of their individual members.
International Cost Engineering Council Major Objectives Encourage, promote and advance the science and arts of cost engineering, quantity surveying and project management for the public good, worldwide Coordinate Congresses and Symposia Cooperation with other International bodies: IPMA, FIG, UN, EU, etc
International Cost Engineering Council Major Objectives (continued) Encourage formation of new national societies Accreditation of Certification & CPD programs Further study of CE, QS and PM problems
International Cost Engineering Council Code of Ethics Hold paramount the safety, health and welfare of the public Perform service only in areas of competence Issue public statements only in an objective and truthfull manner
International Cost Engineering Council Code of Ethics (continued) Act for each employer or client as faithful agents or trustees Conduct themselves honorably, responsibly, ethically, and lawfully so as to enhance the honor, reputation, and usefulness of their professions
International Cost Engineering Council ICEC has, through its members, access to more than 120,000 cost engineers. project managers and quantity surveyors in over 120 different nations. YOU CAN BE PART OF THIS NETWORK!
International Cost Engineering Council Cost Engineering and Quantity Surveying: Provide independent, objective, reliable and accurate capital and operating cost assessments usable for investment funding and project control. Analyze investment and development for guidance of owners, financiers and contractors
Cost Engineering and Quantity Surveying Functions Estimate of capital costs Operating costs Manufacturing costs Decision analysis Appraisals Planning & Scheduling Risk Analysis Site studies Cost management Contract management Quality audits Value management Dispute resolution Feasibility studies Procurement management Trending Cash flow management Life cycle costing
International Cost Engineering Council Project Management ( on cost management matters only ) Sets project objectives in line with purposes set up by general management and manage resources necessary to meet objectives
Project Management Functions Managing resources Delegating of tasks Receiving information Setting goals Motivating people Understanding cost engineering and quantity surveying
International Cost Engineering Council ICEC International and World Congresses on Cost Engineering, Project Management, and Quantity Surveying: 22 nd congress, Durban, South Africa st congress, Singapore th congress, Toronto, Canada th congress Ljubljana, Slovenia th congress Cape Town, South Africa th congress Melbourne, Australia th congress Calgary, Canada th congress Rotterdam, Netherlands th congress Guadalajara, Mexico 1996
