The Project Earned Value (EV) toward the MREFC effort rose $6.17 million this month to a calculated $215.4 million. The cost variance (CV) changed -$1.36 million this month to -$2.5 million, and the cost performance index (CPI) held at 0.99. The schedule variance (SV) changed by $-0.43 million to -$4.4 million, which equates to a schedule performance index (SPI) of 0.98. There were 17 project change requests (LCRs) implemented this month; 10 had an impact on cost or schedule, resulting in a net contingency draw of -$12,113,541, which includes the Data Management (DM) replan LCRs. As of the end of the month, the Project has allocated 42% of the total contingency to the baseline through the change control process. The remaining contingency of $48.2 million is 23% of ETCI1 (ETCI=BAC2-BCWP3) and 22% of ETCII (2017 bottom up).
