Earned Value Management System (EVMS) Assessment

Federal Agencies and Department of Defense programs must comply with Office of Management and Budget (OMB) and Federal Acquisition Regulations (FAR/DFAR) as well as ensure effective project oversight by requiring Contractors have a certified Earned Value Management System (EVMS). The EVMS should integrate program scope, schedule and cost objectives; establish a baseline plan for accomplishment of program objectives, and use EVM for performance measurement during execution of the program. KM Systems Group (KMSG) offers proven EVMS review and validation solutions for Federal Agencies and Government Contractors aimed at establishing compliance with the ANSI/EIA-748 EVMS Standard. Our services focus on the review of people, processes, and tools as they relate to the five Project Management Institute (PMI) Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK) process areas.

Integrated Baseline Review (IBR) Training & Support

A successful project controls process is dependent upon your organizations ability to establish a valid Performance Measurement Baseline (PMB). If these parameters are erroneous, high risk, unsubstantiated, or unrealistic, the likelihood of achieving the program objectives on schedule and within budget is significantly reduced. KMSG provides training and facilitation support for Federal Agencies to develop and document an achievable PMB.
