3 EVMS Added to FAR Parts Part 2, Definitions Part 7, Acquisition Planning Part 34, Major Systems Acquisition Part 42, Contract Administration and Audit Services Part 52, Solicitation Provisions and Contract Clauses.
4 Part 2, Definitions “Earned value management system” means a project management tool that effectively integrates the project scope of work with cost, schedule and performance elements for optimum project planning and control. The qualities and operating characteristics of earned value management systems are described in ANSI/EIA Standard -748, Earned Value Management Systems. (See OMB Circular A-11, Part 7)
5 Part 7-Acquisition Planning 7.1 Acquisition Plans, (b) Plan of Action (10) Management information requirements. Discuss, as appropriate, what management system will be used by the Government to monitor the contractor’s effort. [ If an EVMS is to be used, discuss the methodology the Government will employ to analyze and use the EV data to assess and monitor contract performance. In addition, discuss how the offeror’s/contractor’s EVMS will be verified for compliance with the ANSI/EIA standard, and the timing and conduct of integrated baseline reviews (whether prior to or post award). See 34.202
6 Part 34-Major System Acquisition 34-000 Scope of part This part describes acquisition policies and procedures for use in acquiring major systems consistent with OMB Circular No. A-109; [and the use of Earned Value Management Systems in acquisitions designated as major acquisitions consistent with OMB Circular A-11]
7 Subpart 34.005-2 Mission-oriented solicitation (b) The solicitation Shall-- add a new (6): [Require the use of an Earned Value Management System that meets the guidelines of ANSI/EIA Standard – 748 (current version at time of solicitation).

9 34.202 Integrated Baseline Reviews (a) The IBR is meant to verify the technical content and the realism of the related performance budgets, resources, and schedules. It should provide a mutual understanding of the inherent risks in offeror’s/contractor’s performance plans and the underlying management control systems, and it should formulate a plan to handle these risks.
10 34.202 IBRs (b) The IBR is a joint assessment by the offeror or contractor, and the Government, of the- –(1) ability of the projects technical plan to achieve the objectives of the scope of work; –(2) Adequacy of the time allocated for performing the defined tasks to successfully achieve the project schedule objectives –Plus 3 more (c) Conduct the IBR IAW agency procedures.
11 34.203 Solicitation Provisions and Contract Clause (a) The CO shall insert a provision that is substantially the same as the provision at 52.234-XXX, Notice of Earned Value Management System, in solicitations for contracts that require the contractor to use an EVMS and for which the Government may require an IBR after award. When an offeror is required to provide an EVMS plan as part of its proposal, the CO shall forward a copy of the plan to the cognizant ACO or responsible Federal Department or agency and obtain their assistance in determining the adequacy of the proposed EVMS plan.

25 CAO/CIO/SPE Memorandum Must conduct a compliance review if contractor does not have a current AA Must conduct an IBR on all contracts, before or after award as appropriate, to ensure establishment of PMB. As interim procedure use DOD EVMIG as guidance to implement agency EVMS system. PMSC is working on EVMS Acceptance process guide that could be applicable to both Government and industry. OMB will ask PMSC to start new project to develop a full EVMS implementation guide.
26 Rewrite of FAR Part 34 Major Systems Acquisition OFPP will draft a rewrite of Part 34 to change title to Major Acquisitions and align it more closely to Circular A-11, Part 7 –Will conduct process to rescind Circular A-109. –Research laws where A-109 mentioned, submit request for changes to insert A-11, Part 7. Expected completion NLT December 2005
