IPMR DID Change – Office of Secretary of Defense Publishes New Procedure

by Humphreys & Associates | June 27, 2012 11:11 am

Office of Secretary of Defense (OSD) Publishes the Integrated Program Management Report (IPMR) Data Item Description (DID)

This is important, new information for companies with U.S. Department of Defense EVMS contractual requirements.

The Department of Defense Integrated Program Management Report (IPMR), Data Item Description (DID), DI-MGMT-81861, replaces the Contract Performance Report (CPR) DID, DI-MGMT-81466A, and the Integrated Master Schedule (IMS) DID, DI-MGMT-81650.

The IPMR DID can be downloaded from the ASSIST database:  IPMR ASSIST document

The IPMR DID will apply to new contracts and may be applied to follow on contracts, subject to negotiation with the government customer.

In summary:

We highly recommend being prepared to support the new IPMR DID as it will impact existing EVM Systems.  It will be necessary to reference the old and new terms and forms.  Existing contracts will be against older DID requirements (unless otherwise negotiated with the client) and new contracts will be against the IPMR DID.

Be prepared to update:

Most cost and schedule software vendors are aware of the IPMR data requirements.  You may want to check with your toolset vendor of choice to see when they plan to have software updates available to support the IPMR DID and the UN/CEFACT XML data submissions to the OSD EVM Central Repository.
