the usage of "will"


In the following sentence, the word "will" does not functioned as a future tense, right?


At an early stage, the authority will have to consider and decide a number of questions concerning the aim of the project.


What is the role of this "will" then?

The use of will always suggests the future tense, except when it is a noun.


In this case it is saying that when implementing this project (at an early stage) in the future, considerations will have to be made.
