A cross-functional group organized for the specific purpose of delivering a project to an external or internal customer.

An Integrated Project Team is a cross-functional group of individuals organized for the specific purpose of delivering a project to an external or internal customer. For the purposes of this Standard, this team may be composed of both Federal and contractor (or subcontractor) personnel, and it will support and report to the Federal Project Director. For complex or hazardous projects, a subordinate contractor IPT (CIPT) may be formed to support the Federal IPT and Project Director.

The IPT is a multidisciplinary team formed to manage major capital projects. OMB Circular A-11 recommends an IPT be established to ―…analyze the performance and capability of the portfolio of assets used by the program, [and] should be led by a qualified program manager, supported by budgetary, financial, procurement, user, program, information resource management, value management professionals, and other staff as appropriate"

DOE O 413.3 defines the IPT as an essential element in DOE’s acquisition process, and it is used during all phases of a project’s life cycle, organized and led by the FPD. This team consists of professionals representing diverse disciplines with the specific knowledge, skills, and abilities to support the FPD in successfully executing a project. The team membership will change as a project progresses from initiation to closeout to ensure the necessary skills are always represented to meet project needs. Team membership may be full or part time, depending upon the scope and complexity of a project.

The IPT is accountable for developing the project’s contracting strategy and for providing regular and systematic oversight of the contractor’s performance relative to established project baselines and contract requirements, and coordinating changes through the CCB. Monitoring mechanisms include monthly earned value management (EVM) reports, property management
reports, and other status reports. When problems repeat within a project, the IPT is responsible for determining the cause of the problem and a reasonable solution. The IPT monitors the overall project’s health, including the type, frequency, and extent of changes.
