World-wide usage

The use of the COSMIC method is growing. Currently we have a representation to 26 countries, spread throughout all continents. In our Publications, we have a list of companies and institutions that have made public that they are using the COSMIC method. We also have a number of vendors throughout the world that can give commercial support to your organization in the use of the COSMIC method.
We also have a COSMIC User Group on LinkedIN to make connection with the COSMIC community and if you have a question about the COSMIC method, you can always leave a post on our LinkedIn forum to see if there is someone in the community to help you tackle the question.

The US Government Accountability Office published a “Cost Estimating and Assessment Guide: Best Practices for Developing and Managing Capital Program Costs”. The COSMIC method is listed as one of the best practices for software sizing in its chapter on ‘Software Cost Estimating’. The Guide is obtainable from http://www.gao.gov/new.items/d093sp.pdf
