Project Delivery Working Group

June 2019 EFCOG General Session/PDWG Board Meeting Presentation/Hanford Face-To-Face May 2019 Meeting

Project Delivery Working Group Approved FY19 Annual Work Plan


The Project Delivery Working Group (PDWG) is chartered to leverage the expertise and experience of DOE’s contractors to address challenges and achieve improvements in project delivery across the complex. The PDWG’s purpose is to seek out, promote, and share the best practices and processes for successful project delivery at DOE facilities. This will be achieved through contractor subject matter experts and professionals from across the complex, working together and in partnership with DOE to strengthen and advance the development, management, and delivery of projects (and project-like activities) in support of DOE missions. The PDWG’s portfolio includes those broad-based, interrelated elements across the project lifecycle critical to successful delivery. Areas of focus include:

  • Acquisition strategy and planning
  • Earned value management
  • Cost estimating and scheduling
  • Management of complex projects
  • Integration of safety into the design process and other technical processes
  • Contract alignment and incentives
  • Start-up and commissioning
