ICF International Re-Appraised at CMMI Level 3 for Software Development Projects
FAIRFAX, Va.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- ICF International (NAS: ICFI) , a leading provider of consulting services and technology solutions to government and commercial clients, announced that it has been re-appraised as operating at the Capability Maturity Model Integration (CMMI) Maturity Level 3 for ICF Software Development Projects - revalidating the company's continued commitment to employing industry best practices. This appraisal was performed by an industry high-maturity Lead Appraiser from Process Strategies, Inc., revalidating ICF's continued commitment to employing industry best practices. This appraisal also included the assessment of ICF's Supplier Agreement Management process, which demonstrates that ICF's subcontractor management processes are compliant with industry best-practice standards.
CMMI is a process improvement approach that provides organizations with the essential elements of effective processes that ultimately improve their performance. An appraisal at Maturity Level 3 indicates ICF is performing at a "defined" level. At this level, processes are well characterized and understood, and are documented in standards, procedures, tools, and methods. ICF's set of standard processes, which is the basis for Maturity Level 3, is established and improved over time.
"Our clients can continue to be confident that ICF projects are implementing these best practices and are utilizing a sophisticated, mature, and industry-recognized set of activities that are repeatable," said Ellen Glover, executive vice president for ICF International.
