Leidos announced that the company earned an enterprise-wide Capability Maturity Model Integration for Development, CMMI-DEV, Maturity Level 3 rating. CMMI maturity levels provide benchmarks that allow customers to differentiate potential suppliers.

"This benchmark is one of many illustrations of Leidos' ongoing commitment to delivering products subjected to the highest quality standards, developed in accordance with mature management and engineering processes, by a team dedicated to continual improvement," said Karen Pierce, Vice President of Mission Assurance, noting that Leidos also maintains ISO registrations at over 50 facilities. CMMI-DEV contains best practices used to guide the implementation of processes that foster continual improvement. Leidos earned CMMI-DEV Maturity Level 3 using the Standard CMMI Appraisal Method for Process Improvement. The independent and comprehensive appraisal assessed the company's approaches to systems and software engineering, integration, maintenance, and management across the organization, and included a review of projects utilizing Agile and traditional development methodologies.
