EVM Proposal Development
Do you need to
address EVM in your proposal? Management Technologies provides
consulting and authoring services to help
address specific EVM requirements that are
required to respond to RFPs.
Often RFPs require
that bidders address how EVM will be applied on the proposed effort
or how an EIA 748 EVMS will be established after contract award. If
done well a description of how EVM is applied can help win the job.
If done poorly it might just cause a proposal to be rejected
regardless of how well other areas are addressed.
Your customers look for a
proposed EVM implementation that shows knowledge about EVM
processes, appropriate placement of Control Accounts, and supports
EVM data collection. They expect EVM data will be timely, accurate,
and actionable. Trying to learn how to address EVM requirements
while under the pressure to complete a proposal likely results in a
less optimal EVM approach. Your customers can view this as an increased
cost for EVM that is passed on to them, and lower EVM data quality.
The cost and
challenges of meeting EIA 748 can be reduced by addressing EVM
requirements during initial project planning and proposal
development. When EVM is addressed while structuring the project
organization (OBS) and WBS it can reduce the cost of performing EVM
and improve data quality and ease of reporting.
Earned Value Management
Volume Management: Management
Technologies was selected by a midsize US DoD
contractor to manage the EVMS Volume of the proposal. An EIA 748 EVMS was not in place. The volume addressed the EVM process as well
as how the baseline would address the program's characteristics
and meet EIA 748 shortly after contract award. The volume was
accepted by the DoD customer as meeting their requirements.
Earned Value Management Process
Proposal: A small (under 100
employees) US Government contractor was required to meet a specified
subset of EIA 748. A proposal was developed that addresses how this
requirement was met. The firm was awarded the $50M IDIQ contract.
