The judging criteria places priority on the all-round positive contribution the project controls professional has made to the business through outputs and outcomes of their respective project (encompassing projects, programmes or portfolios) whilst recognising the essential role that the management and use of the wider project controls toolkit has in delivering success.

Each of the criteria is scored between 0 (no evidence at all) and 10 (perfect evidence) with each section being weighted accordingly (see %).
