Cost Assessment Data Enterprise (CADE)
The Cost Assessment Data Enterprise (CADE) is an Office of the Secretary of Defense Cost Assessment and Program Evaluation (OSD CAPE) initiative to increase analyst productivity and effectiveness by collecting, organizing and displaying data in an integrated single web-based application, improving data quality, reporting compliance and source data transparency. CADE aims to provide the government analyst with a single, authoritative website utilizing data visualization methods to house source data which are easily searchable and retrievable. CADE offers the analyst a reduction in the time spent on ad-hoc data collection and validation, allowing more time for in-depth, meaningful analysis in support of DoD’s mission.

Integrated Program Management (IPM), a division of Acquisition Policy and Innovation (API) 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.

Mission: Promoting data driven decisions that improve acquisition outcomes through recognized management practices, flexible policy and guidance, innovative methods, and IPM knowledge/expertise.

    NDIA IPM Division

The Integrated Program Management Division (IPMD) is the primary forum for exchanging views and information to promote and communicate integrated program management best practices. The IPMD actively works to foster mutual understanding and effective working relationships between Industry and Government regarding the development, documentation, and maintenance of effective integrated program management processes. The IPMD and its predecessor, the Program Management Systems Committee (PMSC), has long been industry’s advocate on the use, implementation, and integration of EVM practices with program management and other disciplines.

The IPMD initiates and leads program management improvement initiatives with the DoD and other Federal agencies for the mutual benefit of the Industrial base and the Government to understand and adapt to changes in the business and procurement environment.
