A Carnegie Mellon University-run research and development center has given CGI Federal‘s health and compliance unit the highest rating possible for software development processes.
CGI said the university’s federally-funded Software Engineering Institute gave the company a level five rating for establishing a culture of improving those processes.
“For government clients who need reliable solutions that deliver the value promised, attention to quality and process improvement is key,” said CGI Federal President Donna Ryan.
CGI becomes the tenth company to attain a level five rating in this category.
“CMMI Level 5 is the gold standard, so this is a tremendous achievement for the organization,” said Cheryl Campbell, CGI’s senior vice president for health and compliance programs. “In the fast-evolving healthcare market, our clients face complex challenges to fulfill their strategic goals under tight budgets.
Norm Hammock, a lead appraiser at the SEI, said the company achieved the rating by presenting statistics and quantitative methods required for level five.
