Chapter 6: AI Capability Maturity

This AI Capability Maturity Model (AI CMM), developed by the Artificial Intelligence Center of Excellence within the GSA IT Modernization Centers of Excellence (CoE), provides a common framework for federal agencies to evaluate organizational and operational maturity levels against stated objectives.

The AI CMM is not meant to normatively assess capabilities, but to highlight milestones that indicate maturity levels throughout the AI journey.

The AI CMM is a tool that helps organizations develop their unique AI roadmap and investment plan. The results of AI CMM analysis enable decision makers to identify investment areas that meet both near-term goals for quick AI adoption and broader enterprise business goals over the long term.
