"Engineering, Procurement, and Construction" (E P C) is a particular form of contracting arrangement used in some industries where the E P C Contractor is made responsible for all the activities from design, procurement, construction, to commissioning and handover of the project to the End-User or Owner.

"Engineering, Procurement, and Construction Management" (EPCM) is a special form of contracting arrangement. In an EPCM arrangement, the client selects a contractor who provides "management services" for the whole project on behalf of the client. 
The EPCM contractor coordinates all design, procurement and construction work and ensures that the whole project is completed as required and in time. The EPCM contractor may or may not undertake actual site work.
