IV&V is an independent assessment of a project by a third party assessor who has no direct involvement with the development and implementation of the project selected. Independence is established by ensuring the following:
DoIT has established an Independent Assessment Services (IAS) Master Contract as the primary vehicle for agencies wishing to obtain the services of an IV&V Contractor. The objective of this Master Contract is to enable Government Agencies to procure IT assessment services in a timely and economical manner. DoIT Oversight will provide guidance on IV&V services.
For further information on IV&V business rules, program management, selection and entrance criteria, funding and procurement options, please refer to the DoIT IV&V Policy and Process.
