Quality Assurance/Quality Control Program

VLS IT’s innovative management approach to quality assurance and control is an integral part of our mission to harness the collective attributes, skills and experience of its management team, SMEs, individual contributors and subcontractors working in support of the SeaPort-e contract. VLS IT’s Quality Management System (QMS) is predicated upon the use of outcome and output measures as well as process metrics. Outcome measures compare a program result or activity to its intended purpose. We define outcome as a statement of the Navy’s expectation of the mission-related results VLS IT will provide in a particular area.


VLS IT’s output measures provide the immediate result of a value-added process or activity and are expressed in quantitative or qualitative terms. Output measures define the Navy’s quality requirements and expectations and are provided for VLS IT’s use as direct inputs into our Quality Control (QC) system.






Quality requirements are captured as part of the management lifecycle and are implemented into the general production schedule. VLS IT evaluates deliverables and determines quality control processes and actions necessary to ensure high quality services. These processes are captured in our project and task management planning process. As VLS IT schedules individual tasks, an integrated master schedule is created to delineate the inspector for the final product.


The schedule of activities identifies the quality control activities, assigns responsibilities for these inspections and tests and specifies the reporting format. After the capture and analysis of the results, VLS IT identifies any deficient activities and processes and takes the appropriate actions to correct them. Corrective actions may include additional training, improved process, better communications and/or more management scrutiny. Following resolution, the lessons learned are incorporated into the QCP for future actions.


The foundation of VLS IT’s Quality Management Program is based on Prevention rather than correction. Every step possible is taken to avert errors, omissions, discrepancies and deficiencies. VLS IT’s goal is to achieve the highest quality standards at the most efficient and economical level consistent with the project’s goals and objectives.
