Quality Assurance Program

1 Source is committed to customer satisfaction, employee development, and continuous process improvement. 1 Source quality initiatives are based on industry best practices, customer feedback, independent review, and our corporate commitment to delivering the best possible products and services to our customers. In support of the Eagle Program, 1 Source will implement an ISO 9001:2008-compliant Quality Management System (QMS) certified and registered by QMI. Implementation of the QMS will ensure that continual process improvement is established and quality procedures and standards are enforced throughout the life of a contract. The QMS set of best practices provides the foundation for all project related procedures and uses Service Level Agreement (SLA) metrics as primary measures of success. Proper documentation of plans and procedures is necessary and required since the QA activities of process monitoring, process auditing, product and service evaluation, and auditing rely heavily upon unequivocal definitions to measure service, and ultimately, project compliance.

Review/Audit Process

1 Source uses a five-step QA process known as the "5C" methodology which is aligned to the ISO "Plan-Do-Check-Act" methodology for process improvement. The 5C methodology; Collect, Create, Cultivate, Cascade, and Confirm; is used to evaluate the quality of program performance and adherence of the program to the established standards, processes, and procedures.

This methodology will enable us to note trends, manage performance and change effectively, identify root causes for performance issues, determine appropriate actions, and facilitate continual performance improvement.

Prior to submission, all project deliverables will undergo an internal review process in each of the five phases to identify possible defects and ensure quality and completeness of the deliverable. Participants in the internal reviews are selected by their level of involvement and stake in the particular process or product under review. Internal reviews and discussions with DHS staff will keep DHS aware of project progress early and often resulting in on-schedule approval of deliverables.

Corrective Action Process

Problems, issues, and defects identified during the review process or during the course of the project are documented in the issue log for each task order by any member of the project team. These defects are handled in accordance with established problem resolution and escalation processes and procedures. The issue log are reviewed monthly by the task order project manager and reviewed quarterly by the PMO. The corrective action plan depends upon the severity of the identified defect. The corrective action and resolution are also documented in the issue log.

Subcontractors

1 Source expects that teaming opportunities will develop throughout the life of the contract. 1 Source evaluates subcontracting and teaming arrangements at the individual task order level.
