During a status meeting, the project manager apprised the team that the project has spent a total of $7,500 to date and that the earned value is $5,000. How is the project currently carrying out?

A Over planned cost

To calculate the project’s performance using the information provided, you can use the cost performance index (CPI) earned value calculation. The formula for calculating CPI is CPI = EV ÷ AC. Plug in the values to calculate the following:
$5,000 ÷ $7,500 = $0.67.
A CPI of less than 1 means that the project is performing over budget.
