I noticed that EEF is not a part of inputs for processes concerned with Monitoring and Controlling, while OPA's are a must to see there as inputs, for example (Control Scope and Control Schedule)..why?!

EEFs (Factors beyond your control) become less important as you go through the 5 process groups from Initiation to Closing. You can think of them the same way you would Risk - Highest during initiation and lowest during Closing (PMBOK Guide: Figure 2-9. Impact of Variable Based on Project Time).

If a project has gone beyond the Executing process group (Which can produce the project deliverables through Direct & Manage Project Work), the influence of EEFs on project outcome become less significant.
