AACE International will host its third Federal Agency Roundtable with a discussion on “Earned Value Management Lite”. The featured speaker, Beth Ward, will lead the discussion on October 18 from 8:30 am until 12:15 pm at the 20 F Street NW Conference Center in Washington, DC.

About Our Featured Speaker: Ms. Ward works in the Office of the Chief Information Officer at the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA). She recently completed a detail to the Office of Management and Budget’s E-Government Office, where she served as the federal lead for Capital Planning and Investment Control (CPIC). Back “home” at the FAA, she leads FAA’s program management/oversight efforts as reported on OMB’s Federal IT Dashboard, working to improve transparency and accountability of FAA’s IT investments. She also supports major IT programs across the agency in the areas of project management, earned value management, capital planning and investment control, and the associated reporting to internal and external stakeholders.
She is working to integrate CPIC and EVM efforts and reporting, with a goal of streamlining reporting, improving accuracy, and providing more valuable information to the program staff and oversight bodies. Beth is a thought leader in multiple CPIC disciplines; she is also a strong proponent of integrated governance, bringing together the touch points between CPIC, Enterprise Architecture, Project Management, and Security – always working to ensure that IT investments are focused on improving mission performance.
