Effective 11/17/08, the SEI announced that they are performing audits of all CMMI High Maturity appraisals. They also announced and published the criteria being used for the High Maturity Audits. They note that the criteria in no way limit the application of the model or its intent or judgments made during an appraisal, nor do they relieve the organization from fully implementing the model.
