In 2011, QSM secured a contract to provide US Army ODASA-CE with a comprehensive cost methodology, which included tools, consulting support, and on-site training.
Under the terms of the contract, QSM will provide estimation assistance on major ACAT 1 programmes, as well establish a metrics database with data from the Defense and Cost Research Center (DCARC) and DASA-CE data collection efforts.
Since 2004, QSM claims it has helped the army achieve savings and risk reductions of roughly $750m.
