projects to clients in the public and private sectors.  The customization of the management
methodology is, however, based on established management standards like Carnegie Mellon
University Software Engineering Institute's Capability Maturity Model Integration (CMMI®), the
Project Management Institute’s (PMI) Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK®), and
similar programs.

Q U A L I T Y eA S S U R A N C Ee / eI V & V
With Governments & companies under budget pressures, there is an imperative to insure IT
projects from the likelihood of failure, especially as the complexity increases.  Our QA / IV&V
services bring a qualified, objective, honest, and independent approach to assess and report
on project risks; project management quality; technology standards integration into system
requirements; and in general, help ensure that IT projects are aligned & achieve the business
requirements & goals.  

This function can help detect and/or anticipate common characteristics of a project at risk for
failure, like:
  • System delivery exceeding budget or not conforming to schedule.  This maybe the
    result of inadequate project controls; lack of change management processes; and/or
    inability to effectively re-engineer business process.  
  • Scope delivered that is not per user expectations and where delivered, does not
    function properly or expected benefits do not materialize.  This is a common
    characteristic where the business cedes ownership of the program to IT.
  • System sold as replacing legacy systems, does not fully subsume them.
  • Organizational or stakeholder resistance to embrace change engendered by new
    systems and processes.
  • Deficient business process analyses resulting in functionality that is hard to use or
    does not solve the problems it was designed to address.  This may be due to key
    SMEs that understand the business but are unable to participate in the project
    because they are busy running day-to-day operations.
  • Issues and deficiencies in project controls leading to low quality systems and
    sometimes, fraud.

Some key competencies across the spectrum of project management; organizational change;
technology; and internal controls segments:
  • Risk Assessment, Communication, Mitigation & Monitoring
  • Project Management Methodology Review, Gap Analysis, Remediation & Monitoring
  • Deliverables Standards Review, Conformance and Rectification
  • Performance Metrics Identification, Specification, Measurement, Evaluation and
    Reporting
