Who is the CMMI Institute?

The CMMI Institute is the steward of CMMI. CMMI was originally developed at the Software Engineering Institute, a federally funded research and development center within Carnegie Mellon University. In 2016, CMMI Institute was acquired by ISACA.

As the steward of all CMMI-related intellectual property (including the CMMI product suite), the CMMI Institute does the following:

  • Supports the transition of CMMI into broad use across government and industry
  • Maintains and evolves CMMI in a way that best meets the needs of the community
  • Ensures that the quality of present and future CMMI products is protected for all stakeholders
  • Ensures a reliable, valid, and consistent set of products and services for users
