Governance for Railway Investment Projects (GRIP)
Governance for Railway Investment Projects (GRIP) is a management and control process developed by Network Rail for delivering projects on the operational railway. Issue 2 of the GRIP Policy Standard (NR/L1/INI/PM/GRIP/100) was published on 3 March 2012.
GRIP was developed to minimise and mitigate the risks associated with projects to enhance or renew the operational railway and projects in a high street environment. It is based on best practice within industries that undertake major infrastructure projects and practice recommended by the bodies including the Association of Project Management (APM) and the Chartered Institute of Building (CIOB).
