IUI Functional Area Support

Software Engineering, Development, Programming and Network Support. This functional area consists of applying the engineering and scientific disciplines to perform technical analysis of, technically support development of or selection of hardware and computer software, or modification to existing hardware and software for systems, test facilities, or training facilities. This also consists of software engineering efforts and programming support required to technically support software implementation in systems, sub-systems, and components utilizing computers, electronics, and software. Planning, designing, coding, testing, integrating, supporting, and delivering algorithms, software (source code and executables), computer programs are the inherent activities of this functional area. Commercial Off-The-Shelf (COTS) solutions and product modifications (e.g., software tools, licensing, and associated hardware) which are incidental to the overall support service efforts are considered within the scope of this functional area. Generally, the software development processes used for software development under this contract shall be, as a minimum, assessed at Software Engineering Institute (SEI) Capability Maturity Model (CMM) Level 3 or equivalent, however the Government may specify other (either lower or higher) standards in individual task orders issued under the contract.

Information System (IS) Development, Information Assurance (IA), and Information Technology (IT) Support. This functional area consists of providing information system software analysis, requirements definition, design, development, test, modification, installation, implementation, quality assurance, training, and documentation to meet the evolving data storage and reporting needs of programs and management. Analyze existing IT and IS databases, web sites, and IT applications and recommend new or improved interfaces and improved management tools that meet new management requirements, or improve management effectiveness and efficiency. Perform maintenance and technical support for Local Area Networks (LAN) and Wide Area Networks (WAN) that are outside the cognizance of the Navy Marine Corps Intranet (NMCI). Modify, implement and maintain web based information systems and links. Develop web-site structure, prepare documentation for population, implement and maintain web sites. Provide systems engineering and technical support for establishment, test, upgrade, and operational support of systems, networks, workstations and support equipment hardware and software that are outside the cognizance of NMCI. Conduct IA analyses, develop, recommend, and implement, monitor, update, and maintain, IA practices, procedures, equipments, algorithms, and hardware that are outside the cognizance of NMCI.

Program Support. This functional area consists of applying the business, financial management, and technical disciplines required to support planning, organizing, staffing, controlling, and leading team efforts in managing acquisition programs such that the result places a capable and supportable system in the hands of the warfighter when and where it is needed, and does so at an affordable price. This functional area represents an integration of a complex system of differing but related functional disciplines that must work together to achieve program goals through development, production, deployment, operations, support, and disposal.

Quality Assurance Program

IUI’s quality management approach integrates industry best practices from SEI/CMM, ITIL and Agile to ensure customer satisfaction with efficient, quality service delivery. We measure performance using meaningful metrics and drive efficiencies through automation and reduction of process variation as part of regular program reviews.

At the task order level, IUI’s Task Order Manager identifies and monitors metrics related to Task Order performance. The Task Order Manager applies best practices to manage service delivery performance and work product quality to meet or exceed any service level objectives set forth in the Task Order’s Quality Assurance Surveillance Plan.

At the corporate level, IUI executive management monitors cost and schedule performance through the IUI Project Knowledgebase - an integrated reporting system linking financial and project management systems. Customer feedback plays an important role in formal quarterly project reviews. Each customer is visited regularly by a senior executive. Each customer has the cell phone number of both the CEO and COO to call on them at any time. Every IUI customer for over two decades is a reference. This is attributed to IUI's relentless focus on quality in service delivery.
