CLS – Earned Value Management For Contract Managers

Event description: This course will cover explaining the environment related to EVM, distinguishing between EVM System and EVM reporting requirements, defining the typical EVM System solution, discussing key contractual considerations, and discussing EVM metrics and analysis

Andrea Nibert and Dale Gillam

Andrea Nibert
has over 20-years of DoD government contracting experience as a Program Control and Earned Value Management (EVM) Analyst. Professional experience includes Project Controls and Management, EVM Systems, Financial Analysis and Corporate/Cost Accounting with a complementary background in the design, development and implementation of MIS operations to support critical accounting processes, financial tracking functions and invoicing. She is active in multiple community working groups in NDIA, NCMA, and CPM. She has supported all phases of program planning and execution, beginning with proposal support through contract closeout. Ms. Nibert’s focus includes the start-up of programs with EVM requirements, the implementation of the EVMS processes, IBR readiness and training, statusing and tracking programs, formal reporting (CPR and IPMR) and analyzing program performance. In addition, she has participated in Joint Surveillance by completing the intent guide for multiple guidelines and supporting the program team during the interview. Ms. Nibert was a team member demonstrating EVMS compliance, earning a corporate Advanced Agreement. In support of programs not requiring EVM, she applies her process oriented approach to the program reporting to meet the Program Managers requirements ensuring the right data is available for decision making. The programs have been of varying contract type and size, from multiple technical task orders (TTOs), staff augmentation and development of several hundred thousand to several hundred million dollars.

Mr. Gillam has overseen hundreds and led dozens of IPM solutions for many U.S. Department of Defense and Civilian Agency customers. The solutions have spanned the spectrum from million dollar task orders, to several hundred million dollar services and staff augmentation contracts, to multi-billion dollar developmental contracts across all contract types. Mr. Gillam serves as the Chairman and on the Governing Board of the National Defense Industrial Association’s Integrated Program Management Division (NDIA IPMD). Mr. Gillam recently concluded service on the Governing Board of the College of Performance Management (CPM) and of the National Contract Management Association (NCMA) Tyson’s Chapter. Mr. Gillam engages on these Boards to contribute to improving the depth in each discipline while also improving the integration across the disciplines to support better program outcomes.
