How we can work together

Serving government customers

We are a federally funded research and development center (FFRDC), established in 1984, sponsored by the DoD, and operated by Carnegie Mellon University (CMU). Our expert staff offers objective, unbiased technical advice regarding issues in acquisition, software engineering, cybersecurity, and process improvement. We stay close to our sponsor with offices in Arlington, VA (near Washington, DC), in addition to our headquarters at CMU in Pittsburgh, PA.

Serving industry customers

We work with commercial organizations that are interested in gaining a strategic advantage by applying improved software engineering technology or maturing new technology.
