Quality Assurance Program Description
Specific to the Navy Seaport-e contract, ATL has developed a policy to establish, implement, and evaluate quality requirements that ensure risks to human health, to property and assets, and to ATL's business position are minimized while performance is maximized. The quality requirements apply effective management systems on specific work activities commensurate with the risks posed by the project, work order, and individual activities. The ATL Quality Assurance (QA) Program is documented in the ATL Quality Assurance Program Manual and associated implementing procedures. This manual and procedures detail the activities, records, documentation, and training that are required to ensure that the products developed by ATL are of the highest technical quality, are defensible and auditable, and meet the most stringent quality requirements of our clients. ATL's Quality Management System meets quality assurance standard 10 CFR 830 subpart A.
ATL promotes innovative quality leadership through continuous improvement initiatives that provide valuable benefits to its customers. The project manager will ensure consistency, standardization, and the same high quality among similar products being delivered to different audiences. Program management policies require that all products be reviewed by qualified personnel to ensure consistent accuracy and completeness of project work assignments. Program management will perform inspection and acceptance testing and formally sign-off of the products and services received prior to submission for client's acceptance. Executive management will perform periodic self-assessments and will obtain client feedback from the performance reviews and incorporate the results into project operations. The corporate QA officer for the project will perform periodic independent assessments (audits) to verify conformance with applicable project procedures and contract requirements.
ATL's QA program is based on the concept of "plan, execute, assess." Quality assurance is an integral part of our corporate culture. The approved ATL QA Program is documented as a suite of Quality Assurance Procedures (QAPs):
QAP 1.0 Work Process Controls
QAP 2.0 QA Training
QAP 3.0 Work Product Review
QAP 4.0 Records Management
QAP 5.0 Assessment
QAP 6.0 Information
For every task order, Data Quality Objectives (DQOs) will be established, monitored, and independently reviewed to ensure overall quality of work performed under the contract. Results of any audit, survey or independent review will be documented and maintained.
Any personnel performing work under this contract will receive training commensurate to each individual's education, experience, and proficiency and the scope, complexity, and nature of the activity. Records of training will be maintained. Any quality-related services, such as such as instrument calibration and laboratory analysis, will be procured from quality vendors whose internal QA programs will be subject to approval in accordance with the a DD&R site Quality Assurance Program.
