Independent Validation & Verification

The Sanity Check

CTA Government in Technology Forum

February 24, 2014


How do you ensure your technology project will deliver the best results and meet expectations for your organization, client and budget? How do you avoid the perils associated with conflicting project agendas, limited funding, and challenging schedules?

As an integral part of the project development process Independent Validation & Verification (IV&V) brings an independent, unbiased and analytical set of eyes to evaluate each step of the process to ensure goals and requirements are being met. The IV&V process provides objective evaluation to help achieve positive outcomes. The IV&V professional may ask questions like: Is the project on track? Are there problems being ignored? Were initial requirements realistic? Will the project be truly successful?

The presenters for this program are Patti Garofalo and Stephen Fowler of CSG Government Solutions. They will provide you with insights into how IV&V professionals work with clients to attain the highest achievable levels of project success, cost-effectiveness, and security throughout the project life-cycle.
