Project Lifecycle


Project Lifecycle

Our process consists of four main steps. This guide will help you understand what activity is occurring during each step of the process. We have highlighted activities within each phase that will require your commitment and cooperation. Although the depiction of the project lifecycle is iterative, some of the activities can and will be performed in parallel. Remember, the key to project success is communication between you and OG&E.
