DWBHCORP Quality Assurance Plan
Quality Control, with a focus on measurement and achievement of results and deliverables, is an important element of our Quality Management Plan (QMP). However, Quality Assurance (QA) is the foundation of this plan, by establishing and following processes that preclude, mitigate, or eliminate issues before they are realized. As part of our management approach, we maintain and assess processes that enable this performance-based approach to task accomplishment. This is key to integrating professional support that realize cost savings, control work, maximize quality and guarantee responsiveness and customer satisfaction – all SeaPort-e performance objectives.
We ascribe to the eight principles of ISO 9001:2008, and this, along with our compliance with PMI Project Management processes provide the structural process discipline to ensure that all SeaPort requirements, deliverables, and customer expectations are exceeded. Quality Management, specifically attributable to customer satisfaction, will be always be a team priority that is clearly identifiable in our management approach.
The DWBHCORP team is committed to implementing a Quality Management Plan (QMP)/Quality Assurance Program that sets forth the procedures for self-inspecting the quality, timeliness, responsiveness, customer satisfaction, and other performance requirements in the PWS. Our plan ensures consistent, high quality products and services, highlights include:
- Quantitative assurance that our support meets or exceeds all established performance standards found in the PWS of the requirement. This includes adherence to a Quality Assurance Surveillance Plan (QASP), frequent visits with the customer(s), random inspections and the conduct of customer satisfaction surveys.
- Submission of deliverables and fulfillment of all requirements involves the checks and balances of all appropriate staff in quality management and performance monitoring functions.
- Thorough cost and project-controls on all support, particularly on subcontracted labor, as outlined above in accordance with our Project Management principals.
- Implementation of systemic process improvements as both risks and opportunities are identified; and includes Risk Management by applying deficiency identification, tracking, and correction processes as required.
- A robust, valid customer feedback program- one that we take action on.
Our Principal is directly responsible for Quality Management and he will be providing QA oversight on all Task Order work accomplished under SeaPort-e. We use six standard tools to verify the quality of our deliverables and services. They include: QC review checklists; standard templates; Customer-specific QC training; QC reviews of work products; process audits; and satisfaction surveys. Our consistent use of these tools enables our staff to identify, prevent, and ensure non-recurrence of any defect in product or service.
Bottom line: Our Quality Assurance Plan will ensure outstanding on site performance, customer satisfaction, and specifically, on time and quality deliverables.
