Government Agencies Continue to Benefit from Criterion’s CMMI, ISO
9001:2008, ISO 20000-1:2005, and ISO 27001:2005-Certified Processes
VIENNA, Va.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--
Systems is proud to announce that it has achieved the Software
Engineering Institute's (SEI) Capability Maturity Model Integration (CMMI®)
Level 2 rating. This achievement marks Criterion’s most recent milestone
in enhancing its quality processes and customer-focused service delivery.
Criterion, a systems integrator providing innovative, technology-enabled
business solutions to government agencies, demonstrated Maturity Level 2
compliance with CMMI for Development (CMMI-DEV) v1.3 (Continuous) during
an independent appraisal. The appraisal examined the company’s software
development programs and confirmed that the standards in place for
project management, software development, systems integration, and
quality assurance were well-defined, repeatable, and effective.
"Criterion continues to invest in the maturation of the company’s
quality and business practices to maintain the highest standards of
project management and ensure a positive return on our customers'
investments,” said Promod Sharma, president and CEO of Criterion. “We
are confident that our customers will benefit from decreased project
costs, increased schedule predictability, and improved product quality
that CMMI Level 2 processes will bring us."
Criterion’s commitment to customer satisfaction and continuous process
improvement was confirmed by its three International Organization for
Standardization (ISO) certifications: ISO 9001:2008, ISO 20000-1:2005,
and ISO 27001:2005 earlier this year.
Currently, dozens of Criterion professionals are working on projects
with government agencies, including the Departments of Energy (DOE) and
Labor (DOL) and the National Strategy for Trusted Identities in
Cyberspace (NSTIC) pilot program, and are integrating into the daily
flow of their program work the new process models created during the
company’s CMMI Level 2 effort.
