Quality Assurance Program (QAP)
At Sapphire, our approach to quality assurance doesn’t begin with the application of quality tools that are aimed towards achieving quality attributes and strategies but rather, our view is that quality assurance has a foundation and for us our foundation is that quality assurance is not something we do, it is literally an intricate part of everything we do.
We begin with an organizational structure where quality industry thought leaders are empowered to cross functionally and independently engage in customer interface. This cross functional customer interface at all levels promotes continuous exchange and communication between stakeholders and service providers, builds interdependency, which leads to a high degree of trust. High trust levels are critical in breaking down barriers to exceed customer expectations.
Sapphire’s mission in risk management is developing an organization-wide risk management plan, to include a risk management strategy. Our effort is also related to our approach in managing responsiveness and customer satisfaction. Our quality assurance program involves an active surveillance philosophy. The best method to address and reduce problems is a well-conceived and agreed upon plan coupled with frequent communication with task order stakeholders which will address smaller problems before they escalate. Once a problem is detected, direct communication between the task order manager and the government POC will occur immediately. A standard overall process will be available which can be customized by the customer and Task Order Manager to meet their needs and resolution approach expectations and address the identification of common controls.
Our goal is to provide high-quality products and services within schedule and budget; and meet or exceed all contractual requirements, while mitigating risk. Employing an active surveillance philosophy, Sapphire’s QAP approach reflects our commitment to work closely with our customers to achieve their goals and objectives. Our overall approach is based on the following principles necessary.
Managing and Improving Quality
There are several methods available to companies in achieving improved quality assurance:
- Risk Mitigation: We understand the need to perform the support transition, while minimizing the risk to its lowest level.
- Competence: We provide experienced personnel who have the skills to perform their assigned tasks efficiently and thoroughly, the first time and every time.
- Access: We make available to our customers a broad base of resources and expertise that can be tapped for support whenever needed. Our Task Order Manager will remain in close contact with our customers to provide access to all levels of management, increasing the likelihood of producing high quality products and services. The most important impact on quality is the person working on the project. The next strongest factor is the environment in which that person works. The organization, management, tools, and co-workers all play a contributing role in ensuring quality. Our team will work to establish a series of policies and procedures for our customers and task teams to select from in order to appropriately adapt the right set of quality standards and processes. Setting the quality expectations, policies, standards, and procedures will be part of the task order initiation process before the work begins. Templates will be developed for all repetitive forms of documentation (including various types of reports, proposals, budgets, etc.).
Sapphire believes that our team offers the best combinations of:
- Highly capable, experienced, technical workforce
- Experienced management team
- Strong focus on communication, coordination, and automation
- Strong focus on quality improvement and cost reduction
- Strong reputation for delivering high quality products and services
- Very low pass through cost (see Cost/Price Volume)
