Quality Assurance Plan
The objective of ESi’s Quality Assurance Plan is to meet all customer expectations for service, schedule, and cost, to prevent errors, and to provide for continuous improvement. Providing the right personnel is paramount to quality service. Monitoring of technical and financial performance is facilitated through reviews, reports, and documented deliverables, key elements for maximizing quality. While adhering to quality principles and standards (e.g. ISO 9000, Lean Six Sigma, etc.) at the end of the day, ensuring and elevating employee performance is the key ingredient in customer satisfaction.
ESi spends considerable effort up front in vetting the assignment of all Task Order personnel. In addition we monitor performance throughout the life of the contract. ESi has an established work ethic that sets the standard for its personnel performance. ESi holds its teammates to this same quality standard. ESi is proactive in replacing employees and subcontractor personnel who are not performing to our high standards, before they become a problem to our customers.
Personnel performance is monitored and reviewed in formal yearly Performance Reviews, as well as more informal periodic One-on-One Meetings. The purpose of the Performance Review is to provide feedback on the accomplishments of the employee and to discuss job satisfaction and future goals. The more frequent One-on-One Meetings provide the opportunity to discuss the work environment, task related issues, job satisfaction and performance, as well as policies and procedures. The manager is then able to respond to employee concerns and address ways to improve performance or advance career development.
Our SEAPORT-e PM continuously monitors the performance of each awarded Task Order through monthly meetings with the customer and a review of the MPSRs. The ESi PM ensures that all deliverables are met on time and within budget. Informal and formal Program Reviews are attended by the ESi PM, any key technical team members, and the appropriate government customer representative. The review will include current technical and financial status of the Task Order. Information reviewed includes, but is not limited to, the monthly status reports, man hour expenditure reports and problem resolution reports. If an issue arises which affects our performance, the customer and our PM discuss the problem and agree upon a remediation plan. Our PM monitors remediation progress, and involves government stakeholders, as needed, until performance issues are resolved.
ESi provides high quality deliverables to its customers. All reports and deliverables for each Task Order are reviewed by the PM and at least one level of ESi management prior to submission. These reviews include suggestions or corrections to guarantee compliant, properly formatted, and error free deliverables. As a prime contractor for the Federal Government, ESi is evaluated for contractor performance, including technical compliance and customer satisfaction, on each of its contracts annually and at the contract end. In these evaluations, ESi has been consistently assessed at meeting or exceeding all quality requirements.
ESi will tailor our comprehensive quality assurance standards to adapt to the unique requirements for each Task Order. For each Task Order, ESi will augment our standard quality guidelines with applicable unique processes or procedures required to ensure the highest quality services, products and deliverables. In addition, during task execution, the PM and/or Technical Task Leaders will also proactively solicit recommendations for process improvement from the technical staff. ESi promotes continuous quality improvement through communication and reporting.
