Earned Value

Get help setting up your accounting system to support government earned value requirements. PDS personnel have extensive experience with project management and contract administration, including monitoring deliveries, evaluating award fees, evaluating invoices, contract closeouts, tracking data deliverables, monitoring contractor performance, and tracking costs vs budgets for level of effort and CPFF contracts. We are experts in Microsoft Project. We often conduct training classes on techniques for development of project plans and budgets, and tracking cost and progress and earned value.

Government Contract Seminars

Get smart on government contracts. We offer a complete training curriculum to help you understand the way the government awards contracts and what you need to do to comply with their methods and requirements. Courses are interactive and include take home instructional materials. Course completion certificates and CPE credits are provided.

The classes are one day seminars. They are given at various times during the year. Each seminar is $200/student (350 for CPAs desiring CPE credits) and includes lunch. They include Power Point slides (take home) interspersed with interactive drills.

We go out with announcements in advance. If you desire, we will go to your site and do a special session. Generally, we recommend that these not have more than six students as the classes are interactive and I need to be sure everyone is staying up with the calculations.

Call or email Paul Baumann to get on our list for course announcements or set up a special session
