ValidaTek was successfully appraised again at CMMI Level 3 for Development this September. An appraisal at maturity level 3 indicates processes are well characterized and understood, and are described in standards, procedures, tools and methods. Being appraised at this level again will continue to help ValidaTek to improve our services to the customer and also allow us to standout from competitors when bidding on government contracts. ValidaTek Senior Management thanks Megan Findlay Bailey, Emily Gallo, Dave Maulik and especially the DoS CAQM, Army CHESS, and HUD NASS project team members for all of their contributions to this effort and its’ success. Having institutionalized processes, solid project management, and strong teams really helped us quickly get to the appraisal. The appraisal team noticed this also and highlighted how strong the knowledge, teamwork, and ability was of the development teams. Our appreciation goes out to all that were involved in making this effort a success.
