System Verification Review

System Verification Review

The System Verification Review (SVR) is the technical assessment point at which the actual system performance is verified to meet the requirements in the system performance specification and is documented in the functional baseline. The Functional Configuration Audit (FCA) is the technical audit during which the actual performance of a system element is verified and documented to meet the requirements in the system element performance specification in the allocated baseline. An SVR/FCA is mandatory per DoDI 5000.88, Section 3.5.a. Further information on FCA can be found in MIL-HDBK-61 (Configuration Management Guidance). SVR and FCA are sometimes used synonymously when the FCA is at the system level. Also, see the Systems Engineering Guidebook, Section 3.4 for more information on SVRs and FCAs.
