29.B.4Does the contractor limit the use of Management Reserve (MR)to use within project scope and out of scope control accountchanges;indirectratechanges,changestoplanningassumptions; make/buy decisions, or subcontractor originalnegotiations?29.B.5Are logs and change control documentation maintained to showeach MR transaction, approvals, and justifications?29.B.6Are scope, schedule, and budget always planned or transferredtogether when changes are made?QE LOIs Repeated With Discussions29.B.1 Are the revised schedules and budgets resulting from authorized baselinechanges traceable to the prior schedules and budgets?DiscussionIt may be necessary to perform internal replanning actions within scope of theauthorized contract (CBB or Total Allocated Budget (TAB)) to compensate for cost,schedule, and technical problems which have caused the original plan to becomeunrealistic; or which require a reorganization of work or people to increase efficiency ofoperations; or which require different engineering or manufacturing approaches. Internalreplanning is intended to maintain an executable baseline for the remaining in-scopework on the contract.Current budgets and schedules must reflect the current levels of authorized workand be based on resources needed to complete that work.The budgets must betraceable to original authorized budgets and scope. Schedules must support the projectmilestones and deliverables. The ability to track budget values and schedules for bothinternal and external changes is necessary to properly maintain the CBB from contractstart to completion. This also ensures that the CBB maintains a traceable relationship tothe contract. As changes are made to the contract, the CBB must be adjusted by theamount of change in order for the communication between the DOE and contractor toremain valid.Impact of Noncompliance
361Inability to trace the changes leading to the current budget baseline results in a lackof confidence that the baseline changes were properly authorized and implemented,leading to a lack of confidence in the validity of the baseline.Verification StepsData Analysis (Automatable)NoneArtifact Traces between Documents1.Confirm that the BAC reconciles with approved budget changes.a. Review the CBB log to identify which control account budgets were revisedduring the current period.b. For each control account, sum the value of the BAC from the prior period(from the EVM Cost Tool output) plus the value of the approved BACchange as shown in the log.c.Compare that sum to the current budget shown for the control account in theEVM Cost Tool. The numbers must equal. Count the number of CAs wherethis comparison is not equal to zero.3. X = # of CAs where ((Prior period CA BAC + Sum (current periodchanges to CA BAC)) - Current period CA BAC) <> 0 = total # CAs4. Pass: X = 05. Fail: X = >02.Confirm the IMS supports the authorized baseline changes.
