 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 building strong Industry and Government working relationships to promote integrated program management using Earned Value Management (EVM). This includes related program management processes as well as broadening the focus and membership of the IPMD through its continuing outreach initiatives and forums. The IPMD is actively working to foster mutual understanding and the effective development, implementation, and use of Earned Value Management Systems (EVMS) as defined in the ANSI/EIA Standard for Earned Value Management Systems (ANSI/EIA-748), which it authored and updates periodically. The IPMD works with the DOD and other Federal agencies on improvement initiatives for the mutual benefit of the Government and the Industrial base to understand and adapt to changes in the Government procurement environment.

Broad Objectives:

  • Serve as an effective vehicle for the exchange of views and information between Government and Industry regarding matters of common concern that involve integrated program management processes including earned value management.

  • Foster mutual understanding and effective working relationships between Government and Industry regarding the development, documentation and maintenance of effective integrated program management processes.

  • Participate with International counterparts, as opportunities permit, to jointly move toward common EVMS standards (including ANSI/EIA-748) to the extent practical.

  • Provide Government with Industry perspectives on government policies, practices, needs and problems within the IPMD’s purview, conducting such special studies as may be required.

  • Safeguard the interests of NDIA by carrying out the policies, aims and purposes, as laid down in the charter of the IPMD, as well as the NDIA By-Laws.
