Independent Validation and Verification and Risk Management

Independent Verification and Validation (IV&V) activities are critical to the success of long-range, complex programs. A key element of TeraThink’s IV&V success is utilizing seasoned veterans experienced with managing large, complex programs, who can provide best practices, lessons learned, and proven methodologies to guide federal agencies in their program efforts.

Through our IV&V support, we provide an independent and unbiased perspective of all aspects of the project. The primary purpose of this activity is to provide our clients with an objective and independent assessment of the inherent risks of the project and the effectiveness of controls planned or implemented to mitigate them, so as to assist management to control the risks associated with their project.
