Formerly known as the American Association of Cost Engineers, AACE is a professional society serving the total cost management community since 1956. Doug currently maintains several important total cost management certifications and designations, including Certified Cost Professional (CCP), Certified Estimating Professional (CEP), and Honorary Life AACE Fellow (FAACE). He himself was part of the AACE task force to develop and streamline the CEP certification.
Doug has more than 30 years of total cost management, professional estimating, and project consulting experience. At VMS, Doug has been responsible for preparation, review, and validation of conceptual and detailed estimates for domestic and international capital projects ranging from $200,000 to over $10 billion in size.
