The fundamental message of all our experience/past performance citations is MIL’s commitment to clients, expertise in IV&V and program/business processes, and high quality service. The following details the last three years of experience providing similar services.
DOS Financial Management, Organizational, and IT Support
Customer/Client: U.S. Department of State/Bureau of Resource Management/Global Financial Systems
Our 23 years of continuously performing IV&V services for the Department of State (DoS) Bureau of Resource Management speaks to MIL’s ability to exceed our customer expectations. Our DoS project began with six testers at a single bureau. We have successfully won four full and open re-competitions of our contract. The latest competition win was in July 2010. Based on our reputation and skills, our business has expanded from supporting one DoS bureau to supporting six bureaus.
MIL’s IV&V philosophy is that IV&V reviews should be made throughout the system development lifecycle. Identifying issues early in the development process saves DoS cost and rework time. In over 23 years of performing software testing, MIL has identified hundreds of software issues that were prevented from being released to production. Since MIL employs seasoned professionals they bring insight and knowledge to the project to anticipate issues DoS may have with a particular COTS package or programming change. We have also assisted our clients in understanding the new products that are being deployed.
Our DoS IV&V team has been repeatedly recognized and received awards from our clients for superior support and services. MIL’s analysts are so highly respected that a MIL employee was selected as the first ever Contractor of the Year for Global Financial Service Center in February 2008. Our personnel have been cited by the client as knowing the client’s business as well as the client.

IV&V efforts. Ms. Maureen Harris, the Assistant CFO for Systems, recognized MIL’s contribution to HUD receiving an unqualified opinion on HUD’s financial statement. The HUD Travel Manager Project was recognized by the Government Executive Magazine and awarded the Government Executive Magazine’s Travel Manager of the Year Award.

There were no major problems encountered on the project. MIL completed its tasks on time. MIL has always remained within the allocated budget.
DOT FAA Office of the Assistant Administrator for Financial Services / Chief Financial Officer (CFO) – ABA Support Services
The FAA contract is an IDIQ contract. Due to our high customer satisfaction and our quality performance FAA has increased our tasking under optional task areas. The FAA client was very specific regarding quality as it pertained to the overall SLC of the development, execution and documentation of the test plans and test scripts. MIL developed and implemented Standard Testing Operating Procedures for the execution, documentation and Quality Assurance (QA) phases of the overall testing process, including standards for the identification, development and documentation of the test plans, test scripts and test results. For example, a test matrix was prepared with the client to identify the appropriate test plans and scripts and mapped them to the testing requirements for a given testing cycle. Detailed meeting sessions are held with the client testing manager to discuss and agree upon the attributes of each test script and the estimated level of effort to execute, validate, document, QA and deliver the test results. MIL management develops formal project planning documents for each test cycle that defines the scope of the test cycle, # of test scripts to be tested, start and end dates and dedicated assigned resources (scope statement), a detailed base lined project plan used to monitor, control and report the process of each test cycle. Internal peer reviews of the final test results are conducted with members of the test team with a final QA session with the MIL project manager to ensure that the documented test results are complete, accurate, and in accordance with the QA standards. All documents are then delivered into the client designated QC application for review and acceptance.
The MIL Team’s quality processes have been developed to be compliant with ISO9001:2008 and CMMI standards and are used to complement our expertise in providing the best services for our customers. These processes ensure that we maintain the absolute highest standard for our customer products during our monitoring of product or service development, the inspection or audit of underway efforts, and the identification and correction of potential problems related to executing a task.
Our Quality Assurance Program (QAP) details methodologies, roles, and responsibilities for providing the required quality monitoring, inspection criteria, and control processes needed to determine preventive or corrective actions required for product or service discrepancies found during project execution.
The MIL Corporation does not currently have any subcontractors for this contract.
