|EIA 748 is the established "Industry
Guidelines for Earned Value Management Systems". This
standard is often cited in procurement documents, statements of work
(SOWs), and government policy guidance when an organization seeks
to require robust Earned Value management. A compliance review
by Management Technologies can provide your organization an
independent view of your compliance with this standard. Additionally
a compliance review may be conducted upon a potential or current
supplier to ensure that they meet the standard and their earned
value system provides accurate and timely data for decision
An review is usually completed within one week. Our review leaders form an
review team consisting of personnel from Management
Technologies and from your own organization. It is the client's
responsibility to identify the organization to be examined.
This may be a site, department, business unit, agency, etc. Your people are fully
integrated into the review team and report to the lead assessor
during the effort. We include your staff for three very important
reasons: cost reduction, schedule reduction, and retention of knowledge.
Augmenting our Team with your personnel reduces your cost. The
larger Team can complete the review more quickly. Your employees
retain the knowledge from the review, and can be your leaders
in making further improvements to your Earned Value system.
All reviews are performed with the highest regard for the client's
privileged information. The final report is considered confidential
information and is only provided to specific named employees of
The review generally follows a process beginning with a pre-review.
This effort includes a review of relevant corporate Earned Value
Management directives, sample reports, and selected projects' history. It is
during this period that the client's review personnel are identified.
The on-site process begins with a meeting of the key individuals
within the organization. This meeting establishes the climate for
the review and introduces the Team to the organization, key
roles, and administrative matters. During this meeting the Team
is provided detailed data and points of contact for the projects and
departments that will be interviewed during the visit. A schedule
for the week's events is established to coordinate efforts and minimize
the impact to the client's on-going work.
Throughout the review the Team reviews project material, conducts
interviews, and provides management with daily reports on any administrative
or other problems that may impede the Team's progress.
The Team then produces its initial findings and recommendations,
and reviews them in draft form with the organization's senior management.
This draft review provides the Team necessary feedback to ensure
that they have not mis-interpreted any data or missed significant
data that should be considered.
Based upon the responses to the draft report, and any additional
information, the Team produces the final report for management.
This report will summarize their findings and state conclusively
that the organization does or does not meet the ANSI criteria.
If the organization does not meet the ANSI Standard an
plan is also provided.
