Abstract

This primer identifies practices that are most effective and efficient for projects acquiring products and services. Focusing on project-level improvement, the primer selects a subset of practices from the CMMI for Acquisition (CMMI-ACQ) model. These practices include monitoring and controlling suppliers and contractors as well as ensuring repeatedly effective execution of product and service development and service delivery. After using this primer, readers will be able to expand their use of the best practices on their acquisition projects, and their organizations will be positioned to explore the use of the CMMI-ACQ model.
