Turn Reactions into Decisions

We are surrounded by data more and more each day and we’ve been told that this data should help us make smarter decisions; but do you feel like you have been given the space to stop reacting?  Are you making smarter decisions? Or are you still trapped in urgent rapid-fire reactions?

This is especially true when it comes to executing on your task management after phase-in, after the first few months of performance and as the years progress.  At each trigger point, your PMO should be reducing reactions and should be smoothly executing on your tasks in a predictable and ever improving manner.  And one way to accomplish this is to implement systems that allow for increased collaboration and transparency.  Systems that automate data collection and administrative tasks so you can think critically about the important items.

PMO systems should allow you to pinpoint higher priorities, flag urgent items, and get ahead of issues before they paralyze your organization.

Data collection and analytics need to be core features of your next PMO system so you can turn your reactions into decisions.

New NASA Procurement Requirements…iSite Can Help

In late March of 2017, NASA issued a Procurement Notice for revision of NFS 1832.702-70 – Termination Liability (NFS Case 2015-N034) with the purpose to ‘incorporate the guidance regarding termination liability under incrementally funded contracts’.

The goal of this update for NASA to easily be able to understand the liability NASA would face in the case of a potential termination along with the costs of performing work on the contract so the Government is able to limit the amount of funds obligated on the contract.

This new requirement is asking for a higher level of transparency and insight into your PMO finances and a tool like iSite helps facilitate this type of oversight.

iSite’s PMO tool already captures all of the information you need in order to meet this requirement.  Email us to learn how we can help you save time and keep in compliance.

We’ve included the text of the procurement notice below for your reference.
