Answer and Explanation
The correct answer is A

The change control board (CCB) is a formally chartered group responsible for reviewing, evaluating, approving, deferring, or rejecting change requests. The CCB can include project stakeholders, and a change may be requested by any stakeholder involved with the project. Therefore, it is possible for a member of the CCB to submit a change request.

Details for each option:

A. Submitting a change request
Correct. The CCB can include project stakeholders, and a change may be requested by any stakeholder involved with the project. Therefore, it is possible for a member of the CCB to submit a change request.

B. Implementing approved change requests
Incorrect. Implementing approved change requests occurs during the Direct and Manage Project Work process, which is the responsibility of the project manager and the project team rather than the CCB.

C. Initiating and closing a project
Incorrect. A project can be initiated by the project sponsor. However, closing the project is typically the responsibility of the project manager. According to the scenario, the project manager is not a member of the CCB. Therefore, even if the project sponsor is a member of the CCB and can initiate the project, this answer choice can be eliminated as at least one of its parts does not hold true.

D. Monitoring implementation of approved changes
Incorrect. Monitoring the implementation of approved change requests is part of the Monitor and Control Project Work process. The CCB reviews change requests as part of the Perform Integrated Change Control process rather than the Monitor and Control Project Work process. Additionally, the responsibility to monitor the implementation of the approved change requests lies with the project manager, not CCB.
