Portal guidance

The online portal can be accessed here: https://nmcoms.mottmac.com/


The portal is used to support the delivery of the NMC QA framework. AEI users can request and prepare for approval/modification events, manage their AEI requirements and submit annual self assessment reports. Mott MacDonald and reviewers will manage all events through the portal using online reporting for version control and document repository tools.

To support users of the portal, we have created a number of short videos which can be accessed below. These are embedded from YouTube and can be played by clicking on the play button on each video.

Please note that some of the videos do reflect the earlier Mott MacDonald branding however the content is still accurate.
