Applied Project Management for the Federal Government provides the participant with the fundamental concepts of project management in the federal government, with an emphasis on application of tools and techniques to manage a federal acquisition project. This course will include information to satisfy mid-level requirements development and management processes, systems engineering, life cycle logistics, test and evaluation, and competencies and performance outcomes, as defined by the FAC-P/PM policy and competency model.  

Discussions of the project life cycle phases will integrate the systems engineering process (SEP) and related test and evaluation decisions made by the integrated project team (IPT). Expanding on the integrated approach, the course includes information on how to develop an Integrated Master Plan (IMP), and also consider the total cost of ownership (TOC) and life cycle costs (LCC). Finally, the participants will reinforce the knowledge gained in this course and apply their skills to a series of exercises and case studies.

Equivalent to FPM 231: Applications in Project & Program Management, 3 days.
