Program Management Systems Committee
The Program Management Systems Committee (PMSC) is a committee within the Procurement Division of the NDIA. The PMSC is the primary forum for building strong Industry and Government working relationships to promote integrated program management using Earned Value Management (EVM) and related program management processes and broadening the focus and membership of the PMSC through its continuing outreach initiatives and forums. The PMSC 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). The PMSC works with the DOD and other Federal agencies on all improvement initiatives for the mutual benefit of both the Government and the Industrial base, as well as in an effort to understand and adapt to changing government procurement environment. Specific items to be addressed with this joint Industry and Government forum includes the DOD as well as US Government civilian agencies implementing EVM and related program management processes in accordance with Office of Management and Budget (OMB) initiatives. It also includes international organizations implementing EVM in accordance with the ANSI/EIA 748 guidelines.
Continue enhancing the forum for building strong Government and Industry working relationships to promote and communicate Integrated Program Management processes, to fully achieve Industry Ownership and provide management value for both Industry and Government. This includes the civilian agencies now implementing the EVMS as required by the Office of Management & Budget (OMB).
Sponsor the use of EVMS as an integration tool for visibility into technical, schedule, cost, and risk management progress for the mutual benefit of Industry and Government, in both Government and Commercial environments.
Support the maintenance of the ANSI/EIA Standard-748, EVMS, and (current version), the PMSC Guides, and PMSC Agreements as common references for management, suitable for all projects and programs in both Government and Industry.
Continue to work with Industry and Government as the Industry Subject Matter Expert (SME) for the implementation and use of EVM and for interpretation of the ANSI/EIA Standard-748 (current version) and its intent.
Participate with International counterparts, as opportunities permit, to jointly move toward common EVMS standards (including ANSI/EIA 748) to the extent practical.
Broaden the focus and membership of the PMSC to influence acquisition policy and share Program Management best practices among program management professionals.
Current areas of process focus includes but is not limited to; Integrated Program Planning and Scheduling, Risk and Opportunity Management, Baseline Stability, Predictive Metrics, EVMS, and Production Planning.
