Corrective Action Response

How do I respond to a Corrective Action Request?

In EVM Consulting, we deal with Corrective Action Requests (CARs) on a regular basis, so we have plenty of real-world experience. We created an outline of valuable information about DRs / CARs based on our collective experience. Part 1 of the guide is designed to inform you of why CARs are received and who issues them, so you can work to prevent them. Part 2 will prepare you to respond to a CAR in an effective and efficient way.

Corrective Action Response: Sources – Part 1 of 2

In Part 1 of the series we illuminated the varied sources of Corrective Action Requests:
1) Standard Surveillance Instruction (SSI)
2) Agencies that do not use the DCMA for surveillance, such as the Department of Energy.
3) Integrated Baseline Review (IBR)
4) Procedures that are compliant with the EIA-748 Guidelines
5) Contract Performance Report (CPR)
6) Integrated Project Management Report (IPMR)
7) Integrated Master Schedule (IMS)
8) Discrepancy Reports (Levels I-IV)


Corrective Action Response: Planning and Closure – Part 2 of 2

In part 2 of the series, we addressed responding to a Corrective Action Request (CAR):
1) Review the DRs/CARs with the customer
2) Organize for successful CAP management
3) Begin a thorough Root Cause Analysis
4) Develop and evaluate Corrective Action Plans
5) Develop verification closure steps
6) Develop a detailed Integrated Master Schedule for CAP implementation
7) Submit CAP and CAP IMS to the customer for approval prior to implementing the Corrective Actions
8) Implement Corrective Action Plans and track progress to successful completion
9) CAR closure and follow-up
