Rockville, Md. – Abt Associates announced today that it has been appraised at CMMI V2.0 Level 2-Dev. This assessment validates our commitment to delivering the highest standards of systems engineering and project and quality management. This is critical for us to serve our clients and their beneficiaries.
“As part of the process, we were told that the team could really have gone for the Level 3 certification,” notes Lori Hunter, who led the effort to prepare for the appraisal. “The assessment team from CommandTec was very impressed with the processes we follow, with how customer focused our processes are, and with how well we presented our artifacts.”
