DFARS 252.234-7002 – Earned Value Management System Clause - dated May 2011

This clause reiterates the requirements in DFARs 252.234.7001 regarding the use of an EVM System for management of contracts as well as the identification of subcontractors and the requirements for subcontractors to use an EVM System.

The clause includes that “The Government will schedule integrated baseline reviews as early as practicable, and the review process will be conducted not later than 180 calendar days after (1) contract award, (2) the exercise of significant contract options, and (3) the incorporation of major modifications.  During such reviews, the Government and the Contractor will jointly assess the Contractor’s baseline to be used for performance measurement to ensure complete coverage of the statement of work, logical scheduling of the work activities, adequate resourcing, and identification of inherent risks.”

This clause also includes that the contractor provide the Contracting Officer with access to data as necessary to permit Government surveillance, and that when indicated by contract performance, the contractor request approval to initiate an over-target baseline and/or an over-target schedule.

Note: the Earned Value Management System Thresholds Class Deviation Memo dated September 28, 2015, raises the compliance review $50M threshold to $100M. DODI 5000.02 has been updated to reflect the change in the thresholds, the DFARS update is in process.
