LBNE Near Site Cost and Schedule Review

24-25 January 2012


Assess the status and adequacy of the cost and schedule based on the conceptual design for LBNE Beamline, Near Detector, and the associated Conventional Facilities (CF) at the Near Site (Fermilab). This review is to identify areas of weakness, and to recommend actions necessary to bring these elements to the level required for a successful DOE CD-1 review, currently planned for spring 2012.

Note that the design review related to this cost/schedule review was held 1-3 November 2011.

Charge to the Review Committee

  1. Has all the work been appropriately identified, estimated and scheduled, including the work associated with performing the preliminary design, final design, ES&H, QA, and value engineering activities?
  2. Has the project developed a quality resource loaded schedule that includes the entire project's scope of work?
  3. Are there basis of estimate (BOE) documents for each control account/WBS level in the RLS and are the BOEs sound?
  4. Do the cost and schedule estimates roll up properly and can the numbers be traced between the RLS and the BOE?
  5. Is there a contingency development process, is it documented, and is the contingency budget reasonable?
  6. Are the estimated cost and proposed schedule ranges realistic, consistent with the technical and budgetary objectives, and justified by the supporting documentation?
  7. Are recommendations from past reviews being addressed?
  8. Are there any other issues regarding preparation of the cost and schedule for CD-1 that should be addressed?
