Abstract

This guidebook is designed to help acquisition organizations formulate questions for their suppliers related to using CMMI. It also helps organizations identify and evaluate risks in supplier processes by explaining how to gather and interpret supplier data throughout the acquisition and then to effectively monitor supplier processes after contract award.

This guidebook helps clarify what high capability and maturity level ratings signify in a development program and describes how acquirers can apply methods that leverage a supplier’s process improvement initiatives; request, understand, interpret, and use supplier appraisal results; and interpret suppliers’ claims of achieving a CMMI rating.
