Quality Assurance

Straughan is committed to ensuring technical accuracy, compliance with task requirements and repeatable results across tasks and our Quality Assurance (QA) program ensures just that. We require that all work must be performed in conformance with the requirements set forth by our clients, law, or professional good practice. We require all employees, as well as subcontractors performing technical work on behalf of Straughan, perform their duties at all times in such a manner so as to meet these requirements.

Our rigorous QA program requires an approved work plan with defined contents that will act as a road map to performing projects. The QA policies, procedures, and responsibilities will be documented in a manner that is clear to all Straughan employees and will be identified in Straughan’s QA Manual. Our QA Manager will function outside the project management or discipline reporting chain and will report directly to the president to work to continually improve delivery of the QA program.

We will maintain QA records in an orderly manner. Most QA records and other project-related materials must be maintained for a period of at least three years following project completion (or as prescribed by the contract), such as draft and final deliverables, work plans (including revisions), scope of work changes, project-specific QA procedures, work instructions, documentation and verification records.  All employee-specific QA records, such as training or certifications, will be retained for a period not less than three years from the date of termination of employment.

Our deliverable review process is designed to ensure technical accuracy and full conformance with client and Straughan requirements. There will be a Project Manager review to ensure that the client’s requirements as described in the contract and scope of work are being met, the latest Straughan standards and style guides for document preparation are being followed, all software being utilized is identified, verified and valid, input data is valid, current, referenced and transcribed accurately, computations are correct, and all client comments have been received to date and addressed. There will be an independent peer review by an individual who is qualified in the technical area of the deliverable and who was not involved in its preparation. Quality Control (QC) reviews to confirm that the work product meets the work scope requirements and Straughan’s quality standards as well as Quality Assurance reviews to ensure that peer and QC review comments have been adequately addressed and documented will also be required.
