Deliverable Review Process

1 INTRODUCTION
1.1 Background

The Department of Transportation (Department), Division of Construction develops, implements, and maintains enterprise construction support Information Technology (IT) systems related to construction engineering and contract administration. Currently the Departments construction contracts are being managed by various systems. The primary enterprise construction system is the Contract Administration System (CAS). CAS is a legacy mainframe computer system using COBOL programming language, and has been used by the Department since 1968. Due to the age and technology constraints of CAS, it has become increasingly difficult to keep pace with legislative changes and significant growth of construction programs. CAS is not able to support the informational needs of the construction programs, and there is an increasing risk of system failure. In addition, the Department does not have a single, reliable system with which to manage all construction project activities. Information is in multiple systems, including small desktop databases. In some cases, the most current data is contained in paper files within the districts. Since CAS does not store all project records, the Resident engineers (REs) at project sites are responsible for manual record keeping and researching volumes of paper when post-construction claims, arbitration or audits occur. Manual handling, ever-increasing paper documents, and files are labor intensive, error prone, and difficult to access, thus causing additional program cost and time with less product quality. To address the business problems, the Division of Construction has begun an effort to replace its current legacy CAS with a new Construction Management System (CMS). The proposed CMS solution is a Web-based centralized construction management application that will be accessible by all Department construction staff, contactor staff, and internal and external stakeholders. The total one-time project cost as planned over an 8-year period is approximately $20.5 million with full implementation expected to be completed in September 2014. The CMS Feasibility Study Report (FSR) was approved by the Department of Finance (now The Office of the State Chief Information Officer (OCIO)) on January 10, 2006. The first CMS Special Project Report (SPR) was approved on April 1, 2008 by the OCIO, and the latest CMS SPR is currently in the review and approval process. 1.2 Document Objectives

This document presents the Deliverable Review Process for the CMS project. It specifically documents the process that will be used to submit, track, review, update, finalize, and approve deliverable documents provided by the CMS prime contractor (contractor).

Resolution of Conflicts or Inconsistencies

The CMS Request for Proposal (RFP) and the subsequent contract contain contractor deliverable requirements for the contractor to submit deliverables. The process described in this document is meant to supplement and/or provide further detail on the requirements provided in the CMS RFP (RFP DOT 2660-415) and any subsequent contracts, amendments, or agreements with the contractor. Should any inconsistencies or conflicts exist between this document and either the RFP or contract, amendments, or agreements, the RFP or contract, amendments, or agreements will take precedence. Refer to Appendix A for the Contractor Deliverable Requirements excerpted from the RFP.

Deliverable Review Process

2 SUMMARY OF THE REVIEW PROCESS


The CMS project deliverable submittal and review process is provided in the following subsections. 2.1 Process Scope

This process pertains to the submittal of contractor deliverables which are documents, rather than automated tools or project software. A preliminary list of the deliverables subject to this process is identified in Appendix B. It is important to note that the list is provided for informational purposes only and may be revised based on changes in the scope, RFP, contract, or other aspects of the CMS project. It is also important to note that this document provides general guidelines that will be followed for the submittal and approval of CMS project deliverables. Refer to the RFP for detailed and specific requirements pertaining to the content, format, and other requirements relative to the CMS project deliverables. An excerpt of these requirements is provided in Appendix A for reference purposes. 2.2 Important Features of the Deliverable Review Process

The deliverable review process is presented in the flow charts in Appendix C of this document. The flow charts illustrate the specific steps in the deliverable review process and are followed by a matrix that provides a narrative description of each step. In summary, the process features: Completion of a Deliverable Expectation Document (DED) for each deliverable to help ensure that the State and the contractor possess a mutual understanding of the scope, objectives, content, and format of each deliverable. The contractor must complete the DED prior to commencing work on the deliverable. A template for the DED is provided as an attachment (in a separate file, rather than an Appendix) to this document. Contractor walkthroughs of each deliverable (if requested by the CMS Project Manager) to clarify content, answer questions, or to familiarize the project team with the deliverable. Formal review and written comments on deliverables by key project stakeholders, with the use of a standardized matrix to document comments. Refer to Appendix D for a template of this matrix.

CMS Project

Page 3

Deliverable Review Process

Contractor submittal of draft and final versions of each deliverable to accommodate appropriate revisions, corrections, or other changes requested by the Department. Formal written acceptance of project deliverables by the CMS Project Manager, IT Technical Program Manager, and the CMS Project Sponsor. Archiving of all project deliverables in the CMS project library. Identification and Notification of Deliverable Reviewers

2.3

After the CMS Project Manager approves the DED, the CMS Project Manager will identify the individuals who will review and comment on the deliverable. These individuals may vary depending on the scope and subject matter of each deliverable. They may specifically include: CMS project team members, Executives, managers, and staff within the Division of Construction and the Division of IT, The CMS project Independent Verification and Validation (IV&V), and; Other project stakeholders

The CMS Project Manager will develop, maintain, and publish a schedule of contractor project deliverables. The schedule will be disseminated to all potential deliverable reviewers to inform them of the timing of all potential deliverables. Once the DED for a deliverable is complete, the CMS Project Manager will identify the individuals who will review and comment on the draft and final deliverables. The CMS Project Manager will notify the reviewers of the key milestones in the review process for the deliverable, including the date that the draft deliverable is scheduled for delivery, due date for comments, and the due date for a final deliverable. The CMS Project Manager will also disseminate a copy of the DED to the deliverable reviewers so that they are aware of the scope, objectives, and content of the deliverable, and are prepared to comment on it once it is complete. 2.4 Deliverable Review Period

While reviewing the DED, the CMS Project Manager will determine the amount of time required to review and comment on the draft and final deliverables. The baseline time period for review and comment will be:

CMS Project

Page 4

Deliverable Review Process

Not less than ten (10) State business days for review and comment on draft deliverables; Not less than five (5) State business days for review and comment on final deliverables; and, The State will have up to 30 business days to review a draft or a final deliverable

The actual review and comment period specific for each deliverable will be included in the project schedule. The project schedule timeframes should be used by the contractor to establish the completion dates for draft and final deliverables. These dates should be included in the DED. During the review of the DED, the CMS Project Manager will validate the timeframes for review and determine whether any changes to the due date of the deliverable or the review and comment period are necessary. The contractor must make changes to the date/period that the CMS Project Manager determines. The ultimate goal, however, will be to change the dates preceding the due date of the final deliverable, but not the final deliverable due date in the project schedule. 2.5 Comments on Draft Deliverables

Deliverable reviewers will be responsible for documenting their requested changes in a matrix presented in Appendix D. The CMS Project Manager will compile and review comments to draft deliverables prior to forwarding them to the contractor for incorporation into the final draft. During this review process, the CMS Project Manager may consolidate, revise, or eliminate comments as necessary. The CMS Project Manager will be responsible for communicating any of these changes to the reviewer who initially made the comment. 2.6 Finalizing Deliverables

The contractor will be responsible for updating the draft deliverable and producing the final deliverable. The contractor will clearly identify changes to the draft document when the final document is submitted (this may be accomplished by tracking changes in the draft document, although other methods may be appropriate and accepted). In addition, the contractor must use the matrix in Appendix D to document how the comment was addressed in the final version of the deliverable. 2.7 Deliverable Acceptance Criteria

The RFP identifies general acceptance criteria for deliverables. Refer to Appendix A for a description of these criteria. These criteria, in addition to any other agreed upon criteria, should be documented by the contractor in the draft version of the DED.

CMS Project

Page 5

Deliverable Review Process

In addition to the criteria in the RFP, the CMS Project Manager may identify additional criteria specific to each individual deliverable. The CMS Project Manager may direct the contractor to add these criteria to the final version of the DED. In addition to the acceptance criteria in the RFP, examples of acceptance criteria may include: Does the deliverable address all components required by the contract and any areas agreed upon subsequently through meetings and planning sessions (these agreements should be reflected in the DED)? Is the deliverable consistent with the content and format agreed upon in the DED? Does the deliverable meet applicable industry and State of California standards? Does the deliverable meet the project and the Departments business and technical needs? Is the deliverable easy to understand and effectively formatted?

2.8

Formal Deliverable Acceptance

Deliverables will not be considered approved by the Department until they have been accepted by the CMS Project Manager. Acceptance will be documented in writing on a notice of deliverable acceptance. The CMS Project Manager will send the contractor a copy of this form as a written notice of deliverable acceptance. Unless otherwise stated in writing by the CMS Project Manager, the following individuals have the authority to formally accept a deliverable: CMS Project Sponsor IT Program Manager CMS Project Manager

The deliverable will not be considered accepted unless the notice of deliverable acceptance has been signed by each of these individuals. Payment for contractor deliverables will not be made unless the deliverable is formally approved. It is important to distinguish between the roles of deliverable reviewers and deliverable approvers as shown in the flowcharts in Appendix C. Deliverable reviewers are project team members, subject matter experts, stakeholders, and managers and staff within the Division of Construction or the Division of IT who will be asked to review and comment on deliverables for quality control purposes. Their feedback may or may not

CMS Project

Page 6

Deliverable Review Process

be forwarded to the contractor for incorporation into the final version of a contractor deliverable, subject to the discretion of the deliverable approvers. Deliverable approvers have the ultimate authority to approve and formally accept a deliverable. In this capacity, they must sign the notice of deliverable acceptance as indicated above. They may also provide comments on contractor deliverables as part of the deliverable review process.

3 NEXT STEPS
This process will be implemented once the contractor has been selected and commences work. As a first step to implementing this process, the CMS Project Manager will work with the contractors project manager and the project team to ensure that the milestone due dates for all deliverables including DEDs, draft and final versions, and the review and comment period are clearly identified in the project schedule. After project schedule is complete, the CMS Project Manager will develop the list of contractor deliverables and their due dates, and disseminate the list to key stakeholders and the potential deliverable reviewers. The process described in this document should be implemented when the contractor begins developing the deliverables.
