The purpose of the Project Initiation Documentation (PID) is to define the project in detail so it can be used by the Project Board to assess the project and see how it performed. The Project Initiation Documentation gives the direction and scope (Project Plan) of the project and along with the Stage Plan forms the ‘contract’ between the Project Manager and the Project Board .
