Capabilities Document

Project Support Services

TVT excels in managing projects as well as providing the right technologies and technologists to do the job. Our expertise is based on industry-standard best practices and methodologies and involves oversight, IV&V, organizational change management (OCM), and technical project management. We are well-versed in helping clients develop, manage, and implement PMOs. We are proud members of PMI and IEEE.

IV&V Services

The primary focus of the independent verification and validation (IV&V) contractor is to work with the client to ensure that the products developed and processes employed by a project meet specified requirements and adhere to industry, federal and state standards. It is ensured that all processes employ best practices and are being managed and controlled according to the approved and baseline project plans.

In addition, IV&V will facilitate early detection and correction of errors, enhance management insight into risks, provide findings and recommendations, and ensure compliance with project scope, schedule, and budget requirements.

Essentially, the IV&V vendor provides a status on the health of the project on a periodic basis.

We incorporate into our own projects the same principles of project management that we expect to find on the projects for which we perform IV&V services. These include coordinating the work of a multi-disciplinary team and collaborating with the prime contractor, sub-contractors, functional and business stakeholders, and the client’s IT organization.

We successfully provide IV&V services by leveraging best practices and our experience on projects that span multiple states, government entities, commercial clients, vendors, and multi-million dollar projects from coast to coast. Our team members’ IV&V experience has been utilized on projects involving up to 30,000 end users, up to 50 vendors, and multiple projects for large and complex state government entities.

Our IT Consulting Firm’s team consists of certified professionals who specialize in IV&V, and our services involve all types of technologies and COTS solutions. Our IV&V services differ from our traditional quality assurance services in that IV&V personnel operate independently of the project team. We provide IV&V services to public and private sectors, and Quality Management, Control, Risk Identification, and Risk Management are all part of this service offering.

Areas include:

  • Reviewing all aspects of a project
  • IT assessment
  • Due diligence reporting
  • IT process and procedures audit
  • project management
  • Systems analysis and design

We provide the objective viewpoint and expertise of an independent party – and that makes all the difference in ensuring a successful project outcome.

Digital Transformation

We provide systems implementation and application development services where we either build custom applications or implement best-of-breed technologies. These tend to be large and complex projects involving multiple stakeholders and large teams and are often modernization efforts that include technology upgrade and migration.

Many of our transformation projects require our expertise in migrating data from your legacy systems to newer technology platforms. As part of the process surrounding the migration, we may decommission the legacy system, modernize extant systems, and automate manual processes, employing a variety of technologies along the way.

TVT works with MS Azure, AWS, and Google to provide platforms for cloud-based solutions and with Atlassian, Salesforce, IBM, and Oracle to deploy COTS systems; we also provide custom solutions when required by the client. Our project managers, architects, developers, DevOps specialists, analysts, testers, and trainers make for a comprehensive team of IT experts to implement and successfully transition clients to these new technologies.

Data Management Services

Managing data to make better business decisions is critical to any organization’s success. As data expands and becomes less structured, data management becomes needed for effective performance, so to meet this need, we have continued to grow our technical expertise and services around data management. We offer our clients technology-agnostic assessments, architectural reviews, design services, implementation expertise, conversion work, integration, and migration services, to name just a few. We work only with best-of-breed solution providers in this area, including but not limited to IBM, Tableau, Salesforce, Microsoft, SAS, and Oracle An example of the types of services and solutions we offer in this space are:

  • Data migration services
  • Data governance training, policy development and policy implementation
  • Master data management
  • Data warehousing and BI efforts that include tool selection, enhancements, re-design, and reporting
  • Data analytics and data visualization
  • Data security solution implementations and integration

These services may be delivered using a combination of on-site personnel, software-based solutions, and cloud-based solutions.
