Construction is a dynamic process, and no two or more projects are ever alike. Even if having years of experience, every job presents a new set of circumstances and challenges, no matter how to do good during pre-construction stages project monitoring and controlling are necessary to meet project objectives. The objective of this paper is to measures the performance of governmental housing construction projects using earned value analysis. The research is a case study type and mainly conducted at the BOLE ARABSA site. From the case study, the finding indicates that almost all sample blocks from bole arabsa site suffering delays and few cost variations. Material shortage, unit rate change, and work variation were the main reason for the negative cost and schedule variations. The stakeholders shall practice project controlling by continuous monitoring and evaluation using project management tools such as earned value analysis for all aspects of the job that have an impact on cost, time, and quality to improve their performance. The concerned body shall develop and provide a clear guideline and instruction (including the activities to be done to practice earned value analysis) for the stakeholders so that they can train their staff, and use it for day to day reference on their project site.
