6 Independent Test and Evaluation and Goals Enterprise Testing Service (ETS), an organization within Enterprise Systems Engineering (ESE), works hand-in-hand with Product Development (PD) to provide an independent evaluation of development artifacts and product software. Both Systems Quality Assurance Service (SQAS) and ETS are two forms of evaluations that are not mutually exclusive. The type of evaluation required is dependent upon the results of risk-based analysis. The evaluations help the Office of Information and Technology (OI&T) management minimize risk of schedule delays, cost overrun, poor quality, and software failure. ETS provides: - Test environments on which software products can be tested - Independent evaluations of project artifacts and project software Services falling under the category of Test Environments include: - New test database in the ETS Test Center (ETSTC) - Miscellaneous issue for help with an ETSTC testing environment problem - Database refresh - Database backup/restore - User access request to add/reset/modify/deactivate user access to an existing ETSTC environment Test environment services are requested with an ETSTC Service Request. Services falling under the category of Independent Evaluations include: - Work product reviews of project artifacts - Test observation and validation of the operation and use of the software product - Various types of testing including legacy Patient Safety Issue (PSI) testing, risk-based independent testing, performance testing, and system integration testing Goals - Mitigate risk and provide feedback throughout the lifecycle - Ensure that products meet acceptable quality levels before promotion - Provide feedback for continuous improvement for process improvement - Continuously improve the likelihood that a quality product which meets user requirements is deployed on time and on budget - Ensure consistency in the testing methodologies and practices during Agile development - Validate that products are technically ready for incorporation into the VA infrastructure 4

14 ITE-3 Perform Enterprise Systems Engineering Testing ITE-1-DEC01 Independent Test Required ITE-5.1 Review ESE ERF Results In accordance with VA Directive 4900, the Systems Quality Assurance Service (SQAS) Independent Verification and Validation (IV&V) Manager ensures the required Systems Integration Testing (SIT) and Quality Assurance Activities are performed on software if it impacts VA financial systems of record or software that interfaces with such a financial system. SIT verifies the accuracy of the delivered software product and determines whether the product built satisfies the customers requirements based on functional, system and design specifications. SQAS develops the IV&V Software Quality Assurance Plan (SQAP) and IV&V SIT Plan, requirements-based test plans, test cases and test scripts with a focus on internal controls including general and application controls. Internal controls form the core of the Federal Government s financial management standards. Test scripts are executed against project software deliverables to verify functionality, including interfaces, and to perform regression testing, or verify correction of defects ( bug fixes ). SQAS issues certification for production implementation and verifies the installation of software configurable items. The delivered software module or release is verified using configurable item attributes.

The assigned ESE CPE ORR Analyst for the project releases executes an ESE CPE ORR Acceptance Review. The ESE CPE ORR Analyst analyzes the submitted project release artifacts against the published ESE CPE ORR Acceptance Criteria in order to determine the ESE CPE ORR disposition: - Rejected: The submitted ESE CPE ORR is grossly deficient (requirements, requirement traceability, testing results, required items are not provided, etc.). The ESE CPE ORR is rejected and the project team is notified. - Acceptance Issues: The submitted ESE CPE ORR is not meeting some of the published ESE CPE ORR Acceptance Criteria, but does not qualify as a candidate for rejection. The ESE CPE ORR analyst notifies the project team of the issues and/or questions and the ESE CPE ORR is moved to an acceptance issues status. 17

21 If Issues/Questions, ITE-5.5 Address ORR Acceptance Issues/Questions The Enterprise Systems Engineering Capacity Planning and Project Manager Engineering Operational Readiness Review Analyst determines if the project is ready for Operational Readiness Review (ORR). There are 3 decisions that can occur: 1. If accepted, the ESE CPE ORR meets all the published ESE CPE ORR Acceptance Criteria. The project team is notified and the ESE CPE ORR is moved to accepted status and the next activity is ITE-5.6 Execute ORR. 2. If rejected, the submitted ESE CPE ORR is grossly deficient in that requirements, requirement traceability, testing results, required items, etc. are not provided. The ESE CPE ORR is rejected and the project team is notified and the next activity is ITE-5.3 Submit/Resubmit for ORR 3. If acceptance issues are found, the submitted ESE CPE ORR is not meeting some of the published ESE CPE ORR Acceptance Criteria, but does not qualify as a candidate for rejection. The ESE CPE ORR analyst notifies the project team of the issues and/or questions, the ESE CPE ORR is moved to an acceptance issues status and the next activity is ITE-5.5 Address ORR Acceptance Issues/Questions.
