"There also may be multiple control accounts within a responsible OBS
element when the effort within a WBS element must be segregated for
management control purposes driven by scope and exit criteria (i.e.,
completion of task scope). The establishment of multiple control
accounts should be determined by the control account's scope of the
management tasks and consideration for planning and control of
budgets, schedules, work assignments, progress assessment, problem
identification, and corrective actions."

bullet) that discussed the control account plans (CAPs) representing
the work assigned to one responsible organizational element on one
