When we say "standards" they exist in both EEF and OPA. What type of standards exists in EEF and what type under OPA?

When policies and procedures are part of OPA, Personnel administration policies in Plan Human Resources Management Plan is an input under EEF.

Previous sellers and their performance is an EEF under Plan Procurements. Good and Bad relevant experiences of sellers is an OPA under Conduct Procurements.
Both of these point towards performance / experience with the past sellers.

Additionally under the control procurements, sellers performance evaluation documentation is an OPA.

Any thoughts here please in understanding and segregating EEF and OPA better?

Enterprise Environmental Factors

Enterprise environmental factors are internal and external environmental factors that can influence a project’s success, including(e.g.):

Organizational culture
Organizational structure
Internal and external political climate
Existing human resources
Available capital resources
Regulatory environment
Financial and market conditions

Organizational Process Assets

Organizational process assets include any of the organization’s process assets that may be used to ensure project success.

They generally fall into two categories:
  • Processes, guidelines, and procedures, such as: organizational standard processes, standardized guidelines, templates
  • The corporate knowledge base, such as, lessons learned, historical information, past project files


Enterprise environmental factors are the internal and external influences on our project, such as the corporate culture or the financial environment.

Organizational process assets are the procedures, guidelines, templates that we can use on our project as well as the corporate knowledge base, such as past project reports and lessons learned.

May be this helps a bit ...

Our Hosting Company had a DB Crash!

Unfortunately, at about 18:00 MST on March 20th our hosting company Rackspace had a database crash that could not be recovered, and we were forced to restore from a one day old database backup. As a result, all new users, all exams, and all forum posts that were created on March 20th have been lost.
