PURPOSE OF THE UNIT STANDARD 
Learners who are assessed as competent against this unit standard will be able to establish and implement project costing and reporting systems, as well as reviewing the financial status of a project and implementing financial improvement strategies.

This competence complements the other generic management competencies and underpins the Elective learning.

It contributes to the development of a professional community of Building Construction Managers. The contribution to The National Skills Development Strategy is the key developmental interface between learners and new competencies to be achieved.

Its contribution to socio-economic transformation is that learners would be able to undergo RPL-assessment and thereby receive recognition for previous learning and experience. The employability and career prospects of learners can therefore be enhanced by this qualification.
