Metier revs up for FAA project management

Metier Ltd. has been cleared for takeoff by the Federal Aviation Administration.

The Arlington, Va., company won its first contract with the FAA, which as a value up to $7 million, to provide project portfolio management software and services. The contract is for one year with four one-year options.

The FAA picked Metier's WorkLenz product to replace its current capital planning and investment control tool, the company said.

The goal is to improve the FAA's information technology management and deliver better business cases for the agency's budget submission process.

Metier also will work on the earned value management capabilities of major FAA programs. Earned value management is a process for assuring results from large, complex projects.

The company also will help move the FAA from project-centric processes to a portfolio management approach, the company said.

"As a private pilot and a member of the aviation community, I understand the opportunities and great challenges ahead for the FAA," said Douglas Clark, chief executive officer of Metier.
