ICF International led the development and currently maintains and upgrades the Corporate Work Plan (CWP), a management information system, for the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA). The CWP has evolved into one of the FAA’s premier enterprise management tools and is used to initiate, plan, monitor, control, report, and close out the portfolio of FAA field implementation projects.

At any given time, the FAA has more than 10,000 ongoing projects and more than 40,000 requirements and nonactive projects, ranging from installing navigation and communications equipment to building new control towers. CWP interfaces with several key FAA financial systems to provide near real-time data on project status. CWP is also used as a portfolio management tool by FAA management to determine which projects have priority based on cost, risk, and operational need.

FAA senior managers have embraced and institutionalized the CWP, which makes it easier to apply cost, schedule, and performance metrics to groups of similar projects to analyze costs and improve performance. The FAA utilizes the CWP as a tool to manage FAA and contractor resources. As a result, the CWP has helped the FAA reduce costs by conserving staff hours and improving the FAA’s effectiveness in managing its projects nationwide.
