This research investigates potential correlation between Defense Federal Acquisition Regulation Supplement (DFARS)-required Earned Value Management System (EVMS) compliance reviews and their effect on contractor Earned Value Management (EVM) performance and data integrity metrics. The primary objective is to determine if the 2015 DFARS deviation, which raised the dollar-value threshold for EVMS compliance reviews from $50M to $100M, and the resultant reduction in government oversight had any impact'positive or negative'on contractor performance. The authors examined EVM data for contracts requiring EVMS compliance reviews, data integrity metrics, and performance data on programs with varying dollar values for identifiable outcomes from the 2015 DFARS class deviation. The results of the study revealed that neither the 2015 DFARS class deviation nor the presence or absence of EVMS compliance reviews had a discernible impact on contractors' EV performance, EVM data integrity, or on their ability to perform on the contract.
