DSFederal earns ISO 9001:2015 certification and CMMI-DEV 3 rating

DSFederal is pleased to announce that we have been appraised at CMMI Maturity Level 3 for Development. We have also attained ISO 9001:2015 certification.

As the International Standards Organization describes it, the ISO 9001:2015 standard "is based on a number of quality management principles including a strong customer focus, the motivation and implication of top management, the process approach and continual improvement." ISO certification is widely respected as an indicator of organizational commitment to high quality standards and continuous improvement.

Capability Maturity Model

Integration (CMMI) rating is granted by the CMMI Institute, which originated at Carnegie Mellon University; and appraisal at Level 3 recognizes organizations for defined, mature, repeatable processes.

Our CMMI DEV 3 rating and ISO 9001:2015 certification place DSFederal among a leading group of small contracting companies that are recognized for their quality management systems and processes. DSFederal CEO Sophia Parker writes: “CMMI and ISO audits are demanding, but we welcomed the audits as an opportunity to examine all of our processes and to strengthen our dedication to quality at every level of the company. Our quality policy is customer satisfaction through flawless execution and continuous improvement. These highly respected credentials demonstrate our commitment to that policy.”
