Compliance Without a Track Record
As much as I appreciate the compliance badge here, it also needs to be clear that such a badge isn't an indicator of quality.  There needs to be a track record, too.  Tangible, quantifiable examples of a working product must be available in addition to any industry compliance certifications.  I can't count the number of CMMI compliant applications my organizations have procured that fell flat on their face when we tried to implement them.  When your RFP narrows down three vendors and you have to go with the one with the most certifications and badges but is not user friendly, or has not the best ratings from users at other organizations, you shoot yourself in the foot.  I personally admire NIST and PCI-DSS, for example.  But again, you sometimes have to go with your gut and what you think might be possible to change down the road if it means getting what will work out of the box without opening yourself up to exploits.

Building Maturity in Managing Vendors
Another framework to look at is the Software Engineering Institute, Carnegie Mellon University's CERT Resilience Management Model, specifically their External Dependencies Management process area.
