Independent Verification and Validation (IV&V)


CTA Solutions provides a reliable and trusted way to ensure your enterprise infrastructure is being designed and developed with sound engineering practices to align with your mission.  CTA Solutions can help whether the requirements are driven by the dynamic environment in which the business operate, regulatory and mandated compliance, or higher guidance.

IV&V is not merely quality assurance.  As part of the IV&V process, CTA Solutions performs in-depth technical analyses of the product or service and the processes provided.  IV&V allows CTA Solutions to advise you when a problem begins to emerge so you can take corrective actions.  More importantly, while performing IV&V, CTA Solutions acts as an independent arm of the client without bias.  IV&V adds objectivity to the evaluation process and provides value-added analysis that validates success or re-alignment of milestones to achieve the desired results.
