KPG Quality Assurance ProgramQuality is an essential part of all work assignments for KPG and its' Team Members in applyingKPG's Quality Management Plans that include Quality Assurance (QA). KPG bases it's Quality Programs on industry standards such as the Project Management Institute and the Software Engineering Institute’s CMMi models. It includes all of the activities of the overall management function that determine the quality policy, objectives, and responsibilities and implements them by means such as quality planning, quality control, quality assurance and quality improvement, within the quality system.



This approach is broken into three areas that include:

  • Quality Planning – identifying which quality standards are relevant to the project and determining how to satisfy them.
  • Quality Assurance – evaluating overall project performance on a regular basis to provide confidence that the project will satisfy the relevant quality standards.
  • Quality Control – monitoring specific project results to determine if they comply with relevant quality standards and identifying ways to eliminate causes of unsatisfactory performance


These processes interact with each other and with the processes in other project management areas as well. Our approach is compatible with ISO 9000 and 10000 series of standards and guidelines. Furthermore, our approach is compatible with proprietary approaches to quality management such as those recommended by Deming, Juran, and Crosby. Furthermore, it is also compatible with non-proprietary approaches such as Total Quality Management (TQM), Quality Function Deployment (QFD), and Continuous Improvement.

Focusing on QA KPG’s Quality Assurance it will include all the planned and systematic activities that will implemented with the quality system to provide confidence that the project will satisfy the relevant quality standards. It should be performed throughout the project and can be performed by our organization or a similar QA Department.

It is in this area that KPG will work with the you to ensure it implements Process and Product Quality Assurance (PPQA) processes to ensure it will meet your quality goals. The Process and Product Quality Assurance process area supports the delivery of high-quality products and services by providing the project staff and managers at all levels with appropriate visibility into, and feedback on, processes and associated work products throughout the life of the project. Objectivity in process and product quality assurance evaluations is critical to the success of the project. Objectivity is achieved by both independence and the use of criteria. Traditionally, a quality assurance group that is independent of the project provides this objectivity. It may be appropriate in some organizations, however, to implement the process and product quality assurance role without that kind of independence. For example, in an organization with an open, quality-oriented culture, the process and product quality assurance role may be performed, partially or completely, by peers and the quality assurance function may be embedded in the process.

If quality assurance is embedded in the process, several issues must be addressed to ensure objectivity. Everyone performing quality assurance activities should be trained in quality assurance. Those performing quality assurance activities for a work product should be separate from those directly involved in developing or maintaining the work product. An independent reporting channel to the appropriate level of organizational management must be available so that noncompliance issues may be escalated as necessary.

Quality assurance should begin in the early phases of a project to establish plans, processes, standards, and procedures that will add value to the project and satisfy the requirements of the project and the organizational policies. Those performing quality assurance participate in establishing the plans, processes, standards, and procedures to ensure that they fit the project’s needs and that they will be useable for performing quality assurance evaluations.

In addition, the specific processes and associated work products that will be evaluated during the project are designated. This designation may be based on sampling or on objective criteria that are consistent with organizational policies and project requirements and needs.

When noncompliance issues are identified, they are first addressed within the project and resolved there if possible. Any noncompliance issues that cannot be resolved within the project are escalated to an appropriate level of management for resolution.

This process area primarily applies to evaluations of products and services, but it also applies to evaluations of non-project activities and work products such as training activities. For these activities and work products, the term “project” should be appropriately interpreted.

Structured Quality Assurance reviews are an important part of all our work processes as well. While there is great truth to the adage, "quality is built in, not inspected in," there is still no substitute for a thorough "scrub" of our draft deliverables by additional sets of experienced eyes. Our QA ensures that all deliverables and products meet or exceed all specifications, are technically sound, and operationally ready. Because KPG has applied our QA to all our contracts, including multiple, concurrent multitask order contracts with great success, we know our method is sound, and our customers know we deliver quality.

Another important feature of our QA is responsibility and accountability for quality deliverables vested in the Program Manager and Task Managers-ensures that management for quality and sensitivity to our customers' quality requirements are fully integrated with the overall management of the contract. The Project Manager thus performs ongoing quality evaluations as part-and-parcel of his daily management oversight responsibilities. Task Managers who execute task orders under this contract are required to maintain appropriate quality assurance standards, either as specified by the customer or as per best industry practices according to the definition of quality as "fitness for intended use."

Task Leaders also participate on all deliverable QA teams for review of draft deliverables under their assigned task orders. When particularly high quality standards must be achieved, the Program Manager may designate a Quality Assurance Director on a task order to help focus special attention on achieving the desired quality standard. On the KPG Team, the Project Manager, Task Managers, and Quality Assurance Directors are all empowered to change work processes and assign resources on the spot to address deliverable quality issues.
