A Project Controller's Handbook
Insights from Twenty Years of Accounting in Project Environments
by Alana Reid

For those of us involved in financial reporting or project environments, the challenges we face are many. Whether we’re forecasting our labour requirements or performing a variance analysis, there is no shortage to the issues—both technical and personal—we might encounter. Enter veteran accountant Alana Reid, who has spent the majority of her decades-spanning career in project environments. Other books in this genre tend to focus on technical approaches in areas like financial modeling or cost estimating. A Project Controller’s Handbook discusses the day-to-day functional, operational, and reporting issues involved in managing projects. Here, readers can expect to find invaluable guidance on . . . • Establishing a project and its key considerations • Reporting on labour and timesheet data connections • Managing vendor and supply contract reports • Attaining efficiency, considering contingencies, and managing cashflow • Weighing a project’s environmental and social impacts • Much more Through this, Reid provides meaningful groundwork for understanding the financial processes and relationships crucial to projects’ success. Thorough yet concise, A Project Controller’s Handbook draws on Reid’s twenty years of experience to sketch the contours of issues often encountered in project environments, from setup through to reporting on final accruals, creating a helpful, educative resource for anyone entering or looking to break into project environments or take on the role of a controller.
