ANSI 748 Compliance Reviews
  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 making. 

Compliance Review

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 client.


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 action plan is also provided.
