Independent Verification and Validation (IV&V)
Tantus provides IV&V services to promote increased security and protection for our client’s resources and interests. We perform comprehensive audits to determine the quality of our customer’s processes and systems, as well as extensive risk management analyses to determine possible threats. After our analysis and threat identification, Tantus will provide the client with a detailed assessment of our findings, in addition to a remediation plan. These services offer our customers an unbiased review of their processes and systems, allowing our customers to better determine the effectiveness of their organization’s efforts.

Earned Value Management Reporting
Tantus uses Earned Value Management (EVM) reporting to integrate project scope with schedule and cost elements for optimum project planning and control. Our reports track cost milestones and accumulate cost against project milestones to ensure our projects stay on budget and on time.
