To more effectively manage such investments, agencies were directed to implement earned value management (EVM). EVM is a project management approach that provides objective reports of project status, produces early warning signs of impending schedule delays and cost overruns, and provides unbiased estimates of anticipated costs at completion. This report assessed selected agencies' EVM policies, determined whether they are adequately using EVM techniques to manage key system acquisitions, and evaluated selected investments' EVM data to determine their cost and schedule performances. Charts and tables.
