The EM Consolidated Business Center Office of Cost Estimating and Analysis team includes, left to right, Lori Rice, Michael Mills, Russ Donaldson, Allen Moe, Steve Okszewski, Kevin Barry, and Office Director Terry Brennan.
The Environmental Management Consolidated Business Center (EMCBC) has filled a need to establish a program cost estimating function to support the EM mission.
Locating the Office of Cost Estimating and Analysis (OCE&A) at the Cincinnati-based EMCBC, the organization that provides technical and business services to EM, allowed the office to support the large amount of contracting activity managed by EMCBC.
OCE&Aâs formation in 2008 came at a good time: just before the Recovery Act invested $6 billion into EMâs Cold War cleanup in 2009. The office was able to provide accurate, independent government cost estimates (IGCE) used to evaluate contractor proposals for the Recovery Act cleanup.
âThe team literally hit the ground running. We barely formed the team in 2008 and began training them in the requirements of government cost estimating and the EM mission when we learned that the Recovery Act was going to put $6 billion in work across the complex,â OCE&A Assistant Director Terry Brennan said.
