3. Cost and Contract Analysis
The focus of this subphase is a review of the existing CIA
contract terms and its associated pricing.
Applied will review the contract to identify its alignment or gaps with current
best practices in the way risk is shared, scope is defined, quality is
controlled, and change is governed.
Additionally, they will compare VITA current state pricing to the market
using their pricing database. This
includes data from transactions Integris Applied has executed and assessments
they have performed, as well as open record discoverable pricing and price assessments.
This is more than a raw cost review: it focuses on the incentives driven by the
structure as well. The cost analysis
includes the specific structure of services covered by the costs and identifies
content and environmental differences between the environments being
compared. This is possible because the
few relevant comparisons to VITA will include public entities with open
records, and because Integris Applied has provided direct end-to-end support
for those comparable enterprises and their second generation sourcing
strategies. This experience and direct
support with the comparative entities allows them to add qualitative insight to
the data and its relation to the VITA environment.
