Department of Energy Order O 413.3B - Program and Project Management for the Acquisition of Capital Assets, Change 3 – dated December 2016

The purpose of this DOE Order is “To provide the Department of Energy (DOE) Elements, including the National Nuclear Security Administration (NNSA), with program and project management direction for the acquisition of capital assets with the goal of delivering projects within the original performance baseline (PB), cost and schedule, and fully capable of meeting mission performance, safeguards and security, and environmental, safety, and health requirements unless impacted by a directed change.”

This order establishes the thresholds and contractual requirements for an EVMS. For projects with a total project cost between $20M and $100M, the contractor is required to maintain an EVMS compliant with EIA-748C. For projects with a total project cost of $100M or greater, the Office of Project Management Oversight and Assessments must conduct the certification review and certify the contractor's EVMS compliance with EIA-748C, or as required by the contract.

The DOE also conducts EVMS surveillance. The surveillance review may include an assessment against some or all of the EIA-748C requirements. For contractors with projects with a total project cost of $100M or greater, the Office of Project Management Oversight and Assessments conducts risk-based, data driven surveillance for the duration of the contract, during contract extensions, or as requested by the Federal Project Director, the Program, or the Project Management Executive. Surveillance documentation is provided to the Contracting Officer noting the compliance status of the contractor's EVMS with EIA-748C, or as required by the contract.
