Integrated Program Management (IPM), a division of Acquisition Data and Analytics (ADA) within the Acquisition Enablers organization serves as the Department of Defense (DoD) focal point for all policy, guidance, and competency relating to EVM/IPM.
Earned Value Management/Integrated Program Management is one of DoD’s and industry’s most powerful program planning and management tools. The purpose of IPM is to ensure sound planning and resourcing of all tasks required for contract performance. It promotes an environment where contract execution data is shared between project personnel and government oversight staff and in which emerging problems are identified, pinpointed, and acted upon as early as possible. IPM provides a structured, objective, and quantitative method to integrate technical work scope, cost, and schedule objectives into a cohesive contract baseline plan called a Performance Measurement Baseline (PMB) for tracking contract performance.
