of a series that will help you articulate
what you want when you order IV&V services.
Many government agencies are looking at independent verification and validation (IV&V) as the panacea to all their ills – or at least some of their ills. This is driven by CIOs who understand the business value of IV&V and results in solicitations being issued for IV&V services. Unfortunately too many solicitations are either overly vague or overly detailed.
To help agencies ask for the services they want The IV&V Group® has developed a taxonomy of IV&V services. It contains only five categoeries of IV&V Services. These include: management and support; engineering documentation; test documentation and test witnessing; reviews and audits; and processes and procedures. Within each category we then list specific services which facilitates the acquiring agency articulating their needs and the supplier meeting those needs. This is a win-win for both.
These categories and their contents provide an orderly core set of IV&V services. First is management and support which contains verifications of:
- Statement of Need
- Program or Project Management Plan
- Configuration Management Plan
- Quality Assurance Plan
- Security Plan
- Master Test Plan (describes management of a large or complex test effort)
Each of these is verified both against the
applicable consensus standard and against best engineering practices. Additional services may include: verification of the transition plan, the project schedule, or an assessment of the Statement of Work (SOW) for
a non-IV&V solicitation, or the metrics for a Service Level Agreement.
The remaining categories will be discussed in future blogs.
