  2. FMS Cases are a collection of thousands of transactions indentured to specific work breakdown indentures consisting of contracts and internal Govt work requests between executing activities.  The Analyst must ensure that the value of these contracts at the commitment, obligation and expenditure levels are accurate at all times.  Should there arise any discrepancy between planned values and performance reports the Analyst is to research and resolve the discrepancy.

  4.
