Efficiency in Government IT Contracts? Ridiculous! But true!
Washington, DC, August 22, 2013: TCG, a leading government technology strategy and IT consultancy, has been appraised at Capability Maturity Model Integration (CMMI) Maturity Level 3 . The CMMI Institute accepted TCG’s SCAMPI appraisal number 19364 on August 9. The appraisal was conducted by Comskil, a CMMI Institute Licensed Partner.
Studies have shown that adherence to CMMI standards results in decreased project costs, increased schedule predictability, improved product quality, and increased customer satisfaction. TCG has been appraised at CMMI Level 2 since 2004. At CMMI Level 3, companies’ processes are considered to be defined across the organization as a whole, and each project’s processes are tailored from these defined standards to drive project efficiencies and cost savings.
“We’re ecstatic to be rated at CMMI Level 3, which will help us save US taxpayers even more money on our Federal government projects,” said TCG president Daniel Turner. “Our success in achieving this prestigious designation has taken literally thousands of hours of hard work and dedication, from our executive team to our project managers, our programmers, and even our back office staff. All I had to do was pay for it. Hats off to all of them for making this happen!”
