IV&V is a quality assurance process, carried out by an independent third party that was originally developed from a best practice introduced by NASA. IT projects assigned to Commonwealth Project Governance Assessment (CPGA) categories 1 and 2 require IV&Vs per the Project Management Standard. Categories 3 & 4 are optional for IV&Vs unless mandated by the SOA, SOC, CIO or IAOC. The IV&V SOR template has been designed specifically for requesting IV&V services. Below is the IV&V SOR template and the 4 attachments required for IV&V engagements that are noted in the SOR template.
The Online Review and Comment Application (ORCA) allows individuals to provide specific comments on draft or published documents. Using ORCA, any person can comment on a document and save their comments to the ORCA database for later review by the appropriate VITA staff.
