ManTech integrates quality assurance into every phase and activity of each task. "Quality through Verification and Validation" (QV2™) is the principal tool we use to accomplish work under Eagle Functional Category 3 and for internal project quality control. Our QV2 methodology fully conforms to industry standards as established by the SEI-CMM®, ISO-9000, and ANSI, and is based on the following principles:
- Make quality a part of the Task Order from its inception
- Structure quality planning and reviews in the task requirements
- Apply quality assurance within the system development life cycle model
- Identify risks early and apply resources as needed to mitigate those risks
- Conduct quality reviews of services and deliverables
- Aggressively use metrics, trend analysis, and lessons learned to evaluate performance
Sound Quality Assurance (QA) enables us to identify potential problems early and take immediate action before poor quality impacts performance. ManTech uses the prescribed methodology, policy, and procedures for the Quality Management Program. We conduct audits of all task order projects, including baseline audits, phase audits, quality assurance audits, and ad hoc audits, and fully documents audit findings.
Our IV&V model begins with the development of the program management plan and supports the entire Software Development Life Cycle (SDLC) through metrics, risk management, configuration management (CM), and formal testing programs. The figure below outlines our key task activities, skills required, and ManTech's solution offering.
By defining functional quality activities for each phase of the life cycle, we are able to include the activities in our task planning and ensure that we allocate sufficient resources for QA.
