Akima announced Tuesday that its subsidiary, Akima Global Technology (AGT), has been evaluated at level three of the CMMI Institute’s Capability Maturity Model Integration (CMMI) Version 2.0 (CMMI V2.0) for development and services. The appraisal was performed by the Integrated Quality Corporation (IQ).
“As our customers’ mission requirements become increasingly complex, it is vitally important that we have a strong service delivery strategy and an enhanced commitment to continuous improvement. This latest appraisal validates our ability to exceed customer expectations while simultaneously lowering costs and improving time-to-delivery,” commented Juvy McCarthy, president of Akima’s Technology Solutions and Products Group.
The CMMI maturity level 3 appraisal illustrates that AGT's work and processes have received the highest form of third-party validation. Also, it demonstrates the company takes proactive approaches to manage operations and projects. AGT’s last appraisal in 2019 was at maturity level 3 for Development under CMMI Version 1.3.
AGT is not the only Akima subsidiary to be rated at CMMI V2.0 three. In March, Akima subsidiary Tuvli also received the coveted level three designation for exceptional business processes.
Akima is a global enterprise with more than 7,500 employees, delivering agile solutions to the federal government in the core areas of aviation, construction, facilities and logistics, IT and mission support, protective services and detention management, and systems engineering. As a subsidiary of NANA, an Alaska Native Corporation owned by more than 14,000 Iñupiat shareholders, Akima’s core mission is to enable superior outcomes for our customers’ missions while simultaneously creating a long-lived asset for NANA.
