iii) Will the V2.0 Appraisal system delay impact V1.3  appraisals which are planned or on going ?

No. CMMI V1.3 Appraisals will continue to be submitted and processed through the SCAMPI Appraisal System (SAS).

iv) What happened with the V2.0 Appraisal System?

The appraisal system availability shifted from the original plan of Q1 2019 due to turnover in CMMI Institute’s  internal development team which led to the decision to outsource the remaining development to a trusted software vendor. CMMI Institute has worked with this vendor previously and they delivered high quality software on time and on budget.
