Please see the ITSqc Code of Professional Practice for more details about Evaluator and Lead Evaluator Authorization.
Individuals can be authorized for internal use within their organizations or may
be associated with an Authorized Organization that can provide eSCM-based
Capability Determination or training services for other organizations. Employees and agents of Authorized Organizations
providing eSCM-based services can become Authorized Evaluators, Authorized Lead Evaluators, and Authorized Trainers.
When applying to the ITSqc to become an Authorized Organization, organizations must demonstrate through their application and supporting materials that they have the capability (or a plan to develop the capability) to field a full Evaluation team (i.e., at least 4 Authorized Evaluators, of which at least one must be an Authorized Lead Evaluator). For more information, please refer to the ITSqc Code of Professional Practice.
