NCI Gains CMMI Maturity Level 3 V2.0 Appraisal

NCI Information Systems has received an appraisal that recognizes the enhancement in the company’s business processes.

The Virginia-based IT service provider has been appraised at Level 3 Version 2.0 of the CMMI Institute’s Capability Maturity Model Integration for Development and Services. Reaching the said level is a major step that shows the organization’s adherence to best practices and processes to fine-tune business operations, the company said Wednesday.   

NCI President and CEO Paul A. Dillahay, also a Potomac Officers Club member and a 2020 Wash100 awardee, said the status upgrade from the institute indicates that the company’s focus on quality, delivery and improvement is evident in every stage of the operations. “The delivery of optimal services and solutions to support mission success for our government customers is at the core of our culture, a commitment we take to heart and practice daily,” he said. 

CMMI is a collection of proven methodologies in business, development and services in 25 aspects including requirements development and management, technical solutions and governance and service delivery management. The system gives enterprises  a standard to measure how useful their business practices are and to determine their weaknesses. 

The framework was designed for more than two decades by Carnegie Mellon University in collaboration with industry partners, governments and the Software Engineering Institute in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. The project, which is required by numerous U.S. government contracts, took place after the institute’s research into organizations that regularly made software punctually and economically. 

To date, 105 companies based in the U.S. have attained Level 3, V2.0. Over 1,000 organizations were appraised for the previous V1.3.
