An initial Compliance Review (CR) is a formal review conducted by a Cognizant Federal Agency (CFA) such as the Defense Contract Management Agency (DCMA) or DOE to assess whether a contractor has implemented an EVMS that complies with the EIA-748 Standard for EVMS guidelines. The CFA conducts this review prior to formally approving or certifying a contractor's EVMS. The contractor must demonstrate to the government customer their EVMS complies with the EIA-748 guidelines, the EVMS is actively used to manage a contract or project, and the EVMS provides valid, reliable, and auditable information.
H&A's mock EVMS review process is designed to help you thoroughly prepare for an initial compliance review. This can be part of a self-assessment process to determine readiness for a government customer compliance review. H&A uses questionnaires, rating forms, interview techniques, and data assessments that closely simulate a government review environment. H&A conducts an in-depth assessment of the EVMS design, documentation, and implementation for each of the EIA-748 guidelines. A broad range of interviews are conducted with the project manager, control account managers (CAMs), functional managers, schedulers, finance, procurement, and other personnel. A series of data traces are also performed to verify the quality of the schedule and cost data to provide reliable information about technical, schedule, and cost performance. 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.
