TestPros Government Services
TestPros began supplying Government Services as a prime contractor following Hurricane Katrina in the summer of 2005, when a former commercial customer working at what is now the Department of Homeland Security called to say that the systems he inherited failed under heavy use during the emergency, and that he wanted TestPros to test all future systems for performance under load to ensure they were ready for use at critical times before they were released into production. Our first task was to make that happen, which we did.
Since that time, we have earned the privilege to serve the federal Civilian, Defense, Homeland Security and Intelligence sectors, adapting our services to the unique requirements of the federal government. Our experience spans the past and current landscape of technology and systems for government agencies, from mainframe systems to current mobile operating environments.
Our government services are applied in classic waterfall and modern lean/iterative /agile environments. We provide a broad range of “independent” services that includes the following:
- Quality Assurance (QA)
- Independent Verification & Validation (IV&V)
