WHAT WE DO
Independent Verification and Validation (IV&V)
WRSystems’ unique approach to IV&V employs the following key factors:

  • Hands-on practical experience of each team member with their target technology or process.
  • Reach-back capability allows us to be flexible and highly responsive when responding to the changing needs and priorities of our customers.
  • Personal commitment of our personnel to take ownership of ensuring success on every project.

The role of IV&V, during any development project, is to ensure that the project is successful by providing an independent objective evaluation. The evaluation provides indications of potential problems with quality, schedule, or cost; recommendations to address specific problems; and root cause analysis for issues. WRSystems works with our customers to develop mitigation strategies that are cost effective and reduce the impact of issues on the schedule.

During transition projects, WRSystems provides customers with the technical support necessary to evaluate the incumbent’s existing system documentation to ensure technical accuracy and verify that the documentation will be sufficient for the new contractor. WRSystems also validates initial deliverables to ensure technical accuracy and system documentation.

Each member of the IV&V management team has a minimum of 10 years of IV&V leadership experience. We actively apply industry standards for IV&V in multiple Software Development & Life Cycle (SDLC) environments. Individual team members are experienced in IV&V, Compliance Evaluation, and have first-hand experience with the technology and/or process. Our reachback capability offers an extensive pool of subject matter experts.
