Civilian Agency Industry Working Group (CAIWG)

The CAIWG (pronounced kay-wig) is the Civilian Agency Industry Working Group (CAIWG).  

The CAIWG provides a forum for the open exchange of government and industry views on performance-based systems, including Earned Value Management (EVM).

The structure of the organization allows it to function as a coordinating organization between the Federal Civilian Agencies, the National Defense Industrial Association (NDIA), and the Department of Defense. 

CAIWG has two co-chairs that lead the organization, one Government and one from Industry.
