Seaport-e Quality Assurance – Contract: N00178-15-D-8378

Quality Assurance is a critical component ingrained in each phase of ProSidian Consulting Engagements. ProSidian Consulting embeds Quality Assurance from inception and throughout every phase of our projects. The primary methods of assuring the quality of services are appropriate advance planning, assignment of sufficient qualified staff resources, provision of appropriate tools, and establishment of rigorous program and project management techniques.

Further, our collaborative method of developing detailed work plans for specific tasks will help assure the quality of support provided on each project task we conduct in support of the Navy SeaPort Enhanced (SeaPort-e) Customers, throughout all seven zones.  In short, quality is not an “add on”— it is integrated into every phase of the project. Work performed is measured against best practice standards that have been defined.  For that purpose, we have assembled a Quality Assurance Review Board (The Review Board) made up of several of our most experienced professionals from throughout ProSidian Consulting. This approach ensures that all required functional and technical knowledge is represented for the task orders, while simultaneously managing costs.

At the core of this approach to managing our business processes is the development and structure of repeatable processes. All functions that are frequently performed can be documented as a series of steps necessary to be performed every time the function is initiated. The term “repeatable processes” does not imply that tasks are not tailored to the specific context of the requirement, but rather that many tasks can be grouped into a standard process that includes the requirement to tailor it to the specific task. Our quality control process is tailored to the tasks being executed. Customer Satisfaction and Quality Assurance Approach Includes:

  • Establishing and maintaining a Quality Management Program Plan for the contract
  • Establishing and monitoring metrics for project objectives
  • The assignment of the technical point of contact for each Engagement Task
  • Establishing quality management processes that include monitoring and assessing performance
  • Coordinating with the government stakeholders to establish quality objectives by deciding the scope and frequency of quality assessments and reporting policies
  • Coordinating with other contractors regarding quality management
  • Conducting periodic and Quality Management Reviews

Our formal, documented quality assurance plan is designed to maximize quality without the need for rework.  All Engagement Deliverables (product or services) are checked for form, format, and technical content before final delivery to your designated technical point of contact and other designated recipients of deliverables.  Each time a process is performed the user follows a checklist to verify completion of each of the various steps in the process.

The goal of our quality control program is producing quality deliverables the first time, every time. However, the more likely course of action is using a continuous improvement program that results in documented guides for all levels of performance.  Thus, we are focusing on the processes by which functional quality requirements are applied to tasks, in-process reviews by our Management and Engagement Team Leads for conformance to requirements and production quality reviews prior to submitting our Engagement Deliverables. Our approach is simple, we follow The Deming Model of PDCA, also known as “The Shewhart Cycle”: 1. Plan, 2. Execute, 3. Monitor, 4. Adjust, and 4.Deliver.

We monitor and maximize quality through a two-pronged approach. ProSidian Engagement Teams begin with an Understanding The Business Template (UBT) then prepare and maintain a program-level Quality Assurance Plan that provides primary guidance for both engagement teams and client stakeholders. The focus on documented standardized processes ensures that our successful deliverables are repeated every time and we can integrate changes into our processes in a systematic, pre-trained and uninterrupted mode, producing predictable results. They form the basis for a continuous quality improvement philosophy across all At ProSidian Consulting Engagement Teams.
