Understanding our customer’s mission, goals, and operating environment is the first key to efficient development and successful deployment of targeted applications. Our professionals employ industry-standard software development methodologies. Our software engineering team’s project performance has been assessed at Capability Maturity Model Integration (CMMI) Level 2 and our software development processes have been audited and found to be in compliance with the ISO 9001:2000 quality standards.
Dynanet built a proof-of-concept Software Asset Management (SAM) tool for GSA to track commercial-off-the-shelf (COTS) software assets throughout their life-cycle. We designed and developed a database-driven repository and reporting tool to store information about software assets and recommended policy guidelines for institutionalizing a federal-wide software asset management program.
The Office of Personnel Management’s (OPM) Investigative Services Division (FISD) performs background investigations for federal employees and contractors. This process has been automated through the Personnel Investigation Processing Systems (PIPS). The PIPS application enables data entry of the personnel security questionnaire and subsequent scheduling, tracking, reporting, and closing of approximately two million background investigations annually.
There are over 3,000 field investigators and 40 federal agencies that access the system remotely. Under an Office of Management and Budget (OMB) mandate, OPM was required to implement Standard Form 86 (Questionnaire for National Security Positions) in PIPS and all external systems affected by the implementation of new forms. Dynanet consultants were an integral part of the OPM team that reprogrammed and tested millions of lines of Natural computer code to fulfill the requirements under the OMB mandate. This was a major undertaking due to the complexity and availability of the System. This system is connected to over 60 remote locations throughout the continental United States and maintains internet access throughout Europe and the Far East. The system processes over 75 million transactions per month with 770,000 batch jobs processing in prime shift five days per week. The system and application regularly achieves 100% scheduled availability with about 14,000 registered users. Dynanet helped OPM to succeed on this major endeavor and we continue to support OPM on other initiatives.
