Recommended Practices


AACE International Recommended Practices (RPs) are aligned with the Total Cost Management Framework, and establish the technical foundation for our educational and certification products and services. RPs provide technical reference information, vetted by a rigorous review process, regarding specific competency areas. RPs may be industry generic providing a broad overview of a specific practice that applies to most industries; or may be industry-specific describing a particular application of a practice in a specific industry.

RPs are free for AACE Members and available for purchase by non-AACE members.
