 Integrated Program Management 

Integrated Program Management Division 


The Integrated Program Management Division (IPMD), formerly the Program Management Systems Committee (PMSC), is the primary forum for maintaining strong Industry and Government working relationships to promote disciplined program performance management methodologies for planning and executing programs to optimize outcomes. Disciplined program performance management methodologies include earned value management (EVM) as defined in the EIA-748 Standard for Earned Value Management Systems (EIA-748) that the IPMD authored and maintains.

The IPMD actively works to foster the mutual understanding and the effective development, implementation, and use of disciplined program performance management methodologies. The IPMD initiates and leads program management improvement initiatives with the DoD and other Federal agencies for the mutual benefit of the Industrial base and the Government to understand and adapt to changes in the procurement environment.

Division Objectives:

  • Serve as a thought leader and source of best practices for program performance management.

  • Strengthen trusted relationships with PARCA and DoD oversight agencies to jointly work on earned value management system (EVMS) related policies and activities to achieve approved EVM systems and consistent practices.

  • Sponsor working groups to improve the state of program performance management to the mutual benefit of all program stakeholders.

  • Collaborate across all Federal agencies to resolve disparate EVM interpretation and documentation emanating from multiple sources.

  • Collaborate with other NDIA Division and professional associations to foster the implementation, integration, and use of disciplined program performance management methodologies.

The PDWG’s purpose is to seek out, promote, and share the best practices and processes for successful project delivery at DOE facilities. This goal is achieved through contractor subject matter experts and professionals from across the complex, working together and in partnership with DOE’s Office of Project Management Oversight and Assessments (PM-1) to strengthen and advance the development, management, and delivery of projects in support of DOE missions. The PDWG’s areas of focus include acquisition strategy and planning, earned value management, cost estimating and scheduling, and management of complex projects.
