ICH Mission

to advance collaborative mechanisms that

assure successful implementation of commercial

IT solutionsaligned with business needs

in acollaborativeandconflict freeenvironment

The Need, Concept and Vision


Aam use cases assuring transparency and implementation success

AAM Use CasesAssuring Transparency and Implementation success

“The unique work you’ve done to frame issues about Interoperability effects on IA of systems is particularly encouraging. I believe it can contribute to ongoing work in the field of IA metrics and composition ongoing at DARPA and other agencies.” “I was pleasantly surprised at the effective and efficient use of funding I was able to invest in this effort as well as your ability to leverage other funding sources. You guys came through!”

DARPA PM regarding ICH Information Assurance Modeling Project


Case study streamlining the it acquisition process saf xc aq af solution assessment process asap
Case Study: Streamlining the IT Acquisition processSAF XC/AQ; AF Solution Assessment Process (ASAP)

    • Provided mechanisms for forcing adoption of 80% solution.

“We have put to practice the AF Solution Assessment Process (ASAP) at the Air Force Communications Agency (AFCA) with some well documented success. It was developed with Interoperability Clearinghouse (ICH) and provides a structured and measurable IT assessment process with the agility to provide decision-quality assessments ranging from quick-looks to more in-depth capability-focused technology assessments and lightweight business case analysis.” General Mike Peterson, AF CIO
