Development and Acquisition Standards

Adopt and maintain standards for all development and acquisition that follow the life cycle of the ultimate deliverable, and include sign-off at key milestones based on agreed-upon sign-off criteria. Consider software coding standards; naming conventions; file formats; schema and data dictionary design standards; user interface standards; interoperability; system performance efficiency; scalability; standards for development and testing; validation against requirements; test plans; and unit, regression and integration testing.

View Control Practices  help

Hide Control Practices  help

  1. Apply development and acquisition standards for changes to existing IT resources. Ensure that there is flexibility within the standard system development life cycle (SDLC) to cope with projects of various sizes and types.
  2. Create policies and procedures as part of the development and acquisition standards that provide appropriate and ‘fit for purpose’ guidelines for controlled development and acquisition of IT solutions.
  3. Incorporate guidance into IT standards for the acquisition of the technology infrastructure components that provide alignment with business requirements, quality practices, industry knowledge, guidelines and future technology direction.
