Meeting Details
The Integrated Program Management Data Analysis Report (IPMDAR) is the revised reporting requirement from the Integrated Management Report (IPMR) for EVM Reporting.  It was issued by DoD’s Acquisition, Analytics and Policy (AAP) in April 2020.  It is already finding its way on to both RFPs and contracts.

Join us for a lively discussion on how the IPMDAR provides for maximum flexibility and tailoring to increase cost and schedule integration and get buyer/seller conversations to be at the level where the work occurs, namely, the control account level. Questions are required to be submitted prior to the event.  There will be a subsequent event TBA focused on the JSON file requirements (DEI & FFS).

Panelists include NDIA IPMD Board members of the joint government/industry IPMDAR adjudication team Vaughn Schlegel, Scott LeFrance, and Dan Lynch.

Earned Value Joke

Only some of you will get why I titled it “Earned Value Joke.”

A fellow was walking along a country road when he came upon a farmer working in his field. The man called out to the farmer “How long will it take me to get to the next town?”

The farmer didn’t answer. The guy waited a bit and then started walking again. After the man had gone about a hundred yards, the farmer yelled out “About 20 minutes.”

“Thank you. But why didn’t you tell me that when I asked you?”

“Didn’t know how fast you could walk.”
