Phacil, an Employee Owned, leading provider of technology solutions to the Federal Government, announced today that their United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) Forest Service Resource Ordering and Status System (ROSS) program has been re-appraised at Maturity Level 3 of the Capability Maturity Model Integration (CMMI)® for Development (DEV) . The Appraisal Team Members (Michelle Apicella, Ana Monzon, Andres Dietz-Chavez, Njeri High, Ana Monzon & Rebecca Noll from Phacil and Lead Appraiser Tom Klein of Two Harbors Consulting) examined the program, personnel management, process improvements, software development and enhancements in support of the USDA Forest Service ROSS program. CMMI is a capability improvement framework that provides organizations with the essential elements of effective processes that ultimately improve their performance.
Phacil was successfully rated at Maturity Level 3 across 18 different process areas including Configuration Management, Decision Analysis and Resolution, Product and Process Quality Assurance, Requirements Development, Verification, Validation and Risk Management, to name just a few. An appraisal at Maturity Level 3 indicates Phacil is performing at a “defined” level, where our processes are well characterized and understood, and are described in standards, procedures, tools, and methods. Phacil’s set of standard processes, which are the basis for maturity level 3, have been established and improved over time.
“It is highly rewarding to see the hard-work exhibited by our USDA Forest Service ROSS employees be recognized by this successful re-appraisal. The USDA Forest Service ROSS team continues to demonstrate a ferocious commitment to customer satisfaction and the practice of continuous improvement,” said Don Michelli, Phacil PMO Director. “As demonstrated by this recent appraisal, Phacil is committed to the principle of continuous improvement of our quality program which, in addition to CMMI® Maturity Level 3 appraisals for Development and Services, also includes ISO 9001:2015 and 27001:2013 certifications.”
