3. Cost and Contract Analysis

The focus of this subphase is a review of the existing CIA contract terms and its associated pricing.

Integris 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.
