Provider Verification and Validation

The developer of custom applications or components for an external customer is the provider in the software acquisition process. The provider process is initiated either by a decision to prepare a response to a request for a proposal or by signing and entering into a contract to provide the system, software product, or software integration service.

The process continues with the determination of procedures and resources needed to manage the project. The V&V effort uses the provider process work products to verify that the request for proposal requirements and contract requirements are consistent and satisfy user needs.

The V&V planning activity uses the contract requirements and program schedules to revise and update the interface planning between the provider and acquirer.

V&V planning for the provider addresses the initiation, preparation of response, contract planning, execution and control, review and evaluation, and delivery and completion activities.
