Changes to Earned Value Management (EVM) Reporting Announced
Andrew Yoo, Learning Director, Earned Value Management
The OSD Office of Acquisition Analytics & Policy (AAP) issued a policy memo, 22 Apr 2020, to announce release Integrated Program Management Data and Analysis Report (IPMDAR) Data Item Description (DID) DI-MGMT-81861B and to authorize for immediate use on contracts, solicitations, and requests for proposal (RFPs).

The new IPMDAR:

* Replaces the paper-based, human readable summary IPMR formats with a set of cost and schedule performance data
* Replaces the IPMR UN/CEFACT XML schema with a JSON data encoding provides a leaner structure meant for exchanging larger sets of data
* Delivers tighter integration and traceability between cost and schedule data
* Provides time-phased historic and forecast data reporting that allows visibility into retroactive changes and promotes and assists the program in predictive analysis
* Promotes Government/Supplier conversation as both parties can have access to the same set of data and analytics capability
* If needed, allows programs to recreate the familiar IPMR human readable formats from the IPMDAR cost and schedule performance data reports

This DID, DI-MGMT-81861B, supersedes DI-MGMT-81861A. Program managers are encouraged to work with their contract specialists to place this DID on contract. The memo can be found on the DAU EVM Community of Practice (CoP) at: https://www.dau.edu/cop/evm/_layouts/15/WopiFrame.aspx?sourcedoc=/cop/evm/DAU%20Sponsored%20Documents/IPMDAR%20DID%20Memo_FINAL.pdf&action=default
