PURPOSE

To provides information to assist Arcbuild and their Project Teams in carrying out their Quality Assurance (QA)-related roles and responsibilities.

To identifies key areas of Arcbuild’s crucial involvement in the QA-related mission success. To helps us implement a QA program that satisfies QA requirements throughout the Critical Decision process.


SCOPE

This applies to Critical Decisions and projects, including design, design – build, design – bid – build, operations, maintenance, decontamination, decommissioning, and environmental restoration.

To develop the overall project strategy; establish requirements and performance expectations; manage the contract; monitor and assess performance; and proactively anticipate and resolve issues that impact project success. While the overall project is executed under the direction of the Arcbuild staff, the contractor is over seen by our site supervisor to typically manages daily execution.


Arcbuilds Quality Assurance Strategy and Policy

As early in the acquisition process as practicable, the project manager should:

• Decide whether to use an existing site-wide QA program, use the contractor’s corporate QA program, or develop a project-specific QA program.

Note: Using an existing QA program may not be viable for exceptionally large, complex, or unique projects. In these cases, the contractor should be encouraged to develop a standalone, project- specific QA program.

• Ensure QA requirements are documented in vendor or subcontractor contracts.

• Address when and where the QA oversight and reporting chain will exist in the project and contractor organizations (i.e., who reports to whom).

• Identify the applicable voluntary consensus standard or standards, using current BCA and      manufacturers guidelines as a minimum.

• Ensure implementing procedures are developed and implemented before the requisite work is performed.

• Evaluate the adequacy of the project-specific QA program or the corresponding contractor’s project-specific QA program.

• Ensure the availability of appropriate personnel resources to support project-specific QA program implementation, including QA oversight.

• Identify document control and records management systems, consistent with applicable codes, regulations, and directives.

• Senior management commitment and acknowledgement of ownership for project quality

• Commitment to the QA program as the mechanism to ensure requirements are met

• Commitment to define quality requirements before work starts

• Commitment to comply with project quality requirements

• Commitment to stop work if unable to comply with quality requirements

• Commitment to monitor processes continuously
Appropriate management should endorse the QA Policy in writing.
 
Quality Assurance Program

The Arcbuild project management portal is a quality-related management system to “do work correctly.”
Each stage of the project is documented in the Arcbuild project management portal.

The Project manager is required to inspect each stage of the project activities to ensure project lessons learned (positive and negative) are produced.
