The annual conference, held August 25th and 26th at the Washington Marriott, brought together government and industry professionals to learn about Federal CPIC trends, regulatory compliance issues, best practices, and other topics. Of the 13 awards, Chevo obtained one of the highest awards presented to the consulting industry. Winners were nominated by clients and peers, based upon achievements in the CPIC field over the past year. The CPIC Forum Executive Steering Committee selected the award recipient for each category based upon the nomination that most highly satisfied the award criteria and had the greatest impact within the CPIC field.
Winners of the CPIC Alliance Award for Earned Value Management, Chevo’s IRS Customer Account Data Engine 2 (CADE 2) team implemented and customized their Schedule and EV Management (S&EVM) process to lead the program to better Earned Value Management. Taking a bottom-up approach, the Chevo team utilized their insight and lessons learned from various disciplines, including CPIC, portfolio management, schedule management, Earned Value Management (EVM), cost estimation, budgeting, and expenditure reporting to craft an S&EVM process to assist the IRS to improve management of the program and multiple contractors. Over the past few years,Chevo has refined and tailored its S&EVM process to fit the culture, embedded methodologies, standards, and legacy systems of the IRS. This process is utilized across four programs, including the IRS’ strategic top three: the Customer Account Data Engine (CADE), CADE 2, and Affordable Care Act (ACA) programs (the fourth is Enterprise Security Audit Trails (ESAT)).
“Industry recognition and validation is an honor, and a tribute, to the hard work and dedication shown by this team,” said Matt Rock, Account Manager to the CADE 2 team.
