Abstract: The difference between committed costs and actual expenditure is a margin of control in project management. By using a measure of uncertainty we construct a cost-risk evaluation framework for assessing the Go/No Go decision at each stage of project implementation. This is a first step in operationalizing the information gain uncertainty reduction decision role in project management.
