An Implementation Review (IR) is another formal review that a government EVM System acceptance authority may perform. Typically this type of review is conducted when a contractor proposes to use an accepted system at a different site or facility, when a program moves from one phase to another such as from system design and development to production, or when there have been significant changes to a contractor’s EVM System Description. This type of review is not a rigorous as a Validation Review (VR). The focus is more on verifying that the contractor is indeed complying with what they say they do.
H&A’s mock implementation review process focuses on how a given project has implemented an EVMS and is designed to help the project personnel, particularly the project manager and control account managers, prepare for the review. H&A uses questionnaires, rating forms, interview techniques, and data assessments that closely simulate a government review environment. Interviews are conducted with the project manager as well as a sampling of control account managers (CAMs), functional managers, and other project personnel. Data traces are performed with the CAMs to verify they have a full understanding of their scope of work as well as how they use the EVMS to manage their work. The deliverable is an out brief or detailed report that documents the interview results and fact-based findings with specific recommendations for improvements or actions to implement prior to the government review.
