Litton, OAO make the grade

Two federal systems integrators'Litton PRC and OAO Corp.' recently earned elite Capability Maturity Model ratings for their software development expertise.

Litton PRC earned a Level 5 rating, the highest CMM ranking, said Randy Belote, media relations director for parent company Litton Industries Inc.

The information systems group at OAO of Greenbelt, Md., achieved a Level 4 CMM rating.

The Software Engineering Institute, a federally funded R&D center at Carnegie Mellon University, developed the model to measure the maturity level of organizations' software development processes.

SEI licensees, not the institute, independently audited the companies' practices.

Litton PRC received its rating for work on a dozen federal proj-ects, Belote said. OAO's rating included a review of work the agency did for the Coast Guard, the Environmental Protection Agency and the General Services Administration, said Larry McGovern, chairman of OAO's software process engineering group.
