Reserve analysis (Section 18.104.22.168) establishes the contingency reserves that are allowances for unplanned but potentially required changes that can result from realized risks identified in the risk register.
Management contingency reserves are budgets reserved for unplanned changes to project scope and cost. These are "unknown unknowns" and the project manager may be required to obtain approval before obligating or spending this reserve. Management contingency reserves are not a part of the project cost baseline, but are included in the total budget for the project. They are not included as a part of the earned value measurement calculations.
