CMMI Certifications Logos

ACT was previously and successfully assessed at Capability Maturity Model Integration-Development, (CMMI-Dev) Version 1.3 Maturity Level 2.  In early December 2018 ACT was favorably appraised at Capability Maturity Model Integration-Development, (CMMI-Dev) Version 1.3 Maturity Level 2 as well as Capability Maturity Model Integration – Services (CMMI-SVC) Version 1.3 Maturity Level 2.  The most recent appraisal was carried out by SG Solutions, Inc., a CMMI Institute Partner. The CMMI Institute approved the appraisal for public use.    

Our Quality Assurance Program is based in our ISO 9001:2015 certified processes for IDIQ and Task Order management and our CMMI Level 2 assessed program management practices used for project level planning, execution, tracking, and reporting. These documented repeatable quality practices are used on every ACT project or program to objectively verify that performance requirements and required work products meet customer expectations. Our goal is to identify deficiencies, document Corrective Action Reports (CARs) and develop/execute corrective actions early in the lifecycle process to reduce costs and maintain schedule milestones.

The ACT team plans to maximize efficiency and mitigate cost through an integrated management process approach that encompasses three key enablers: empower an Integrated Program Management Team (IPMT); coalesce geographically separated team members through an Integrated Digital Environment (IDE); and drive quality products and support through tailored, cost-effective, Program Management Methodologies (PMMs).  Cost containment and a roadmap toward future efficiencies are key factors in choosing an integrated management approach.

ACT embraces a corporate quality structure that is applied to all ACT program and task activities. Quality activities include tracking a multitude of metrics impacting quality on the IDE. Additionally, the ACT team approach embraces two other quality tools: Quality Function Deployment (QFD) and Continuous Process Improvement (CPI).

The QFD tool provides a systematic approach to building a team perspective for meeting customer requirements. The structured QFD methodology defines objectives desired by the customer and identifies the means for deploying the resources required to provide these products or services. As a foundation of ACT’s corporate quality structure, CPI drives each employee to continuously seek new ways of enhancing on-the-job performance. Our customer-oriented focus allows us to define and refine the components of each task and observing the steps in each process that add value to our product and ensure that our programs and products meet or exceed customer requirements.
