Dear Kim:

Pursuant to our communication, CAI/SISCo is pleased to submit a proposal to present a
professional development training seminar titled Earned Value Management System
Seminar Highlights
Increasingly, Federal agencies are turning to Earned-Value Management (EVMS) as a
pre-award investment analysis and post-award performance monitoring tool.
CAI/SISCo's Earned Value Management System seminar provides the skills you need to
compete, win, and continue to thrive in the “brave new world” of EVMS. Key topics
include earned Value – a functional definition and the rationale for it being a mandated
customer measurement tool; how EVMS fits into the overall business development
process; the role of Earned Value in the Risk Management process; how to implement
effective EVMS processes; and Earned Value Management System as a corporate Best


This 7-segment, 1-day seminar covers:

• Segment 1: Today’s EVMS Environment

• Segment 2: Organizing the Project

• Segment 3: Budget, Planning, & Schedule Management

• Segment 4: Work Authorization

• Segment 5: Monitoring Project Performance

• Segment 6: Controlling/Maintaining the Baseline

• Segment 7: Reporting/Analysis of Performance Mgt Data

A question and answer session will conclude the seminar. Students receive hard copy
handouts of all slides plus a CD containing soft copies of the slides and the models.

attendance is limited to 15 people, and 15 sets of handouts will be provided. Additional

To avoid scheduling conflicts, CAI/SISCo’s policy is to establish a firm date for the
training upon receipt of your purchase order.


CAI/SISCo requires a minimum of 10 business days' written notice in advance of the
scheduled seminar start date for cancellation of the seminar with no penalty. Fewer
than 10 business days' notice would incur a cancellation fee of 10% of the seminar
