Certifications Increasingly Demanded by Feds


    Excellent article by Heather Hayes on trends in federal procurement – especially regarding certifications – in the 2/12/07 issue of Washington Technology. The article includes a good sidebar that defines CMMI, ISO 9001:2000, ISO 20,000-1:2005, ANSI 748. EVM, ITIL, along with six sigma and lean that sourcingmag.com readers will be familiar with.


    Sourcingmag’s own glossary at http://www.sourcingmag.com/dictionary/glossary.asp covers some of these terms. You can also learn more about the value of certifications in outsourcing in this Sourcingmag.com blog posting: http://www.sourcingmag.com/blog/archive/the_value_of_certifications_in_outsourcing.html.
