Integrated Program Management Report (IPMR) - DOE Version, dated 25 October 2018

The IPMR contains data for measuring cost and schedule performance on Department of Energy (DOE) capital asset projects. It is structured around seven formats that contain the content and relationships required for the electronic submissions. IPMR formats should be completed for each individual project, not necessarily at the overall contract level which may encompass numerous projects, operations and other work activity.

Format 1 defines cost and schedule performance data by product- oriented Work Breakdown Structure (WBS).

Format 2 defines cost and schedule performance data by the contractor's organizational structure (e.g., Functional or Integrated Product Team (IPT)).

Format 3 defines changes to the Performance Measurement Baseline (PMB).

Format 4 defines staffing forecasts.

Format 5 is a narrative report used to provide the required analysis of data contained in Formats 1-4 and 6.

Format 6 defines and contains the contractor's Integrated Master Schedule (IMS) for the project.

Format 7 defines the time-phased historical & forecast cost and schedule EVM system performance and compliance data submission.

The IPMR's primary value to the Government is its utility in reflecting current project status and projecting future project performance. It will be used by the DOE federal staff, including program managers, engineers, cost estimators, and financial management personnel, as a basis for communicating project performance status with the contractor. DOE will also use the IPMR data for the following purposes:

  • Integrate cost and schedule performance data with objective technical measures of performance.
  • Identify the magnitude and impact of realized and potential performance problem areas that may cause significant cost and schedule variances.
  • Provide valid, timely, and accurate project status information to Government leadership.

The IPMR is used to obtain cost and schedule performance information on capital asset projects under contracts requiring compliance with the Electronic Industries Alliance Standard 748 (EIA-748), Earned Value Management Systems (EVMS) (current version in effect at time of project award). The IPMR data elements must reflect the output of the contractor's EIA-748 compliant system, where applicable.
