Tribalco’s Soldier Survival Division Achieves CMMI Level 2 Rating


BETHESDA, Md.—December 1, 2016— Tribalco, LLC, a global provider of mission-critical information technology, integrated telecommunications, and soldier survival services and solutions, announced that its Soldier Survival Division , known as Division 6, has earned its first Capability Maturity Model Integration (CMMI ®) Maturity Level 2 rating. This is the first time that this division of Tribalco has sought CMMI® appraisal. Tribalco has maintained a CMMI® Level 2 rating for services since 2009 for its other divisions.

CMMI is a framework of best practices for managing, measuring, and monitoring business processes across an organization. By providing guidance that enables companies to develop or improve their processes, CMMI helps organizations meet their business goals, and ultimately improve their performance. Increasingly, government procurement offices view CMMI as a discriminator among companies as they assess competitive bids.

Tribalco’s Division 6 provides specialized operational equipment and tactical combat casualty solutions for the warfighter. As DoD’s exclusive supplier for Tactical Combat Casualty Care (TCCC) and Casualty Evacuation (CASEVAC) sets , Division 6 specializes in the design, integration, and lifecycle management of cutting-edge, battlefield-tested medical care solutions for the forward-deployed special operator. Tribalco’s TCCC portfolio includes engineering, procurement, warehousing/sparing, kitting, and training/support capabilities.

“Our pursuit of a CMMI® appraisal for Division 6 shows Tribalco’s commitment to delivering quality practices to support our customers’ operations,” said Michele Friedman, Tribalco’s Chief Operating Officer. “More importantly, earning this rating, demonstrates that our processes can stand up to the rigor and discipline required to support the critical missions of warfighters in the field.”

The appraisal, performed by a CMMI Institute-Certified Lead Appraiser, involved an extensive evaluation of Tribalco’s Soldier Survival Division’s project performance and the processes it uses to address the needs of its military customers. The two service types covered by Division 6’s appraisal were training and kit assembly from procurement through shipping. The appraisal included seven process areas: configuration management, measurement and analysis, process and product quality assurance, service delivery, work planning, work monitoring and control, and supplier agreement management. Earning this rating indicates that Division 6 executes its processes consistently on all projects.

“Quality execution is a core value for Tribalco across all of our projects, but it is especially important when we are delivering solutions to support combat medics on the front lines,” said Jeremy Catrone, Tribalco Soldier SurvivalDivision Director of Operations. “Our CMMI® Level 2 rating demonstrates the importance that Tribalco places on institutionalizing our quality practices to support our customers’ operational readiness.”

In addition to being CMMI® appraised, Tribalco is ISO 9001:2008 certified. As a part of its formal quality program, Tribalco applies rigorous enterprise-wide quality standards using a unique Quality Management System (QMS). The foundation of Tribalco’s QMS is its proprietary Quality Execution Success Toolkit (QUEST™), a rigid project management lifecycle methodology that yields repeatable and successful outcomes for customers.

“Government agencies continue to seek out CMMI® appraised businesses,” said Friedman. “We are pleased to add this quality rating as a further differentiator for Tribalco’s Division 6.”
