The Professional Performance Innovation and Risk Protocol (PPIR™ Protocol), developed by the Warren Centre for Advanced Engineering, defines the standard of performance of an engineering task which can be expected by employers, clients and other stakeholders.

PPIR sponsor logosRoll-out of the PPIR Protocol in Australian engineering offices is currently being undertaken with the support of many organisations in both public and private sectors, as well as industry associations.

The PPIR Project is now in Phase 3 of the overall project: Mobilising PPIR. The objective of the Mobilising PPIR project is to achieve widespread support of PPIR in the engineering industry and profession, by:

  • Promoting sponsorship of Mobilising PPIR;
  • Promoting adoption of PPIR by procurers of engineering products and services, including State and Federal government procurement agencies;
  • Promoting and supporting pilots and roll-outs of PPIR;
  • Collating and disseminating findings from the PPIR pilots and roll-outs;
  • Promoting certification where roll out of PPIR takes place;
  • Promoting adoption of PPIR in undergraduate and post-graduate tertiary qualifications;
  • Promoting adoption of PPIR by professional associations.

The Mobilising PPIR Project is supported by two project teams:
