NT Concepts announces its successful appraisal at Level 2 of the CMMI Institute’s Capability Maturity Model Integration (CMMI) for Services (CMMI-SVC).

The appraisal, performed by The Process Company, LLC (TPC), concludes the second phase in NT Concepts’ pursuit of CMMI maturity. NT Concepts plans to achieve Level 3 for services and development by late 2014. CMMI is a process improvement approach proven to advance organizational performance. An appraisal at maturity level 2 indicates the organization is performing at a “managed” level. At this level, projects have ensured that processes are planned and executed in accordance with policy; the projects employ skilled people who have adequate resources to produce controlled outputs; involve relevant stakeholders; are monitored, controlled, and reviewed; and are evaluated for adherence to their process descriptions.

“Our application of CMMI process improvement drives our top performance, especially for the critical work we do in OPM investigative services,” said Keith Sheppard, Senior Vice President of Operations.
