Abstract                : << The ATP/ER is to be used for all projects, including internal projects. >>
                          The Authority to Proceed is the key document for initiating 
                          a proposal and also a project. 
                          The Engineering Review Report is produced monthly, 
                          to report progress, resource usage and the financial 
                          situation of the project. 
                          The "ATP Workflow" sheet & "ER Summary" sheet each have a "Print" button to
                          print the relevant sheets. 
                          The ER part is fairly automated, once set up. The key thing to remember
                          is to first "freeze" the previous month's values in "white" cells 
                          in the "Financial Summary" sheet, BEFORE entering anything in 
                          "Resource Usage" or "Financial Summary" for the month you 
                          are working on.
                          There are 3 types of ATP:
                            -  proposal (prepared in parallel with the proposal),
                            -  interim (sometimes, for large/long projects)
                            -  project (prepared during project startup - amending the 
                               earlier one(s), as necessary).
                          For more information about ATPs & ERs, see the Project Manager Guide:
                          (a FrameMaker book in /citr/Engineering/Handbooks/PM Guide) 

                          You need to register your ATP (get a number) - see:
