LPS Requesting QSVP Services  
This page is designed to help clients who wish to request services under the Quality Systems Verification Programs (QSVP).

 
Client responsibilities are outlined in QAD 1000 Procedure, Quality Systems Verification Programs General Policies and Procedures. Program requirements are outlined within individual Program Procedures.

 
Clients must submit an application for service which includes a completed LPS Form 109 - Application for Service, a cover letter, and a complete copy of the client’s program documentation.

 
Clients requesting QSVP services for the first time must complete the LPS Form 109. When completing the LPS Form 109, the client must

 
  • Enter applicant information including name, billing address, physical address, tax id number, telephone number, fax number, and email address;
  • Identify the type of Quality Assessment Division Service requested;

  • Identify the type of operations conducted;

The completed LPS Form 109 must be sent to the Quality Assessment Division along with the cover letter requesting service and the program documentation. These documents can be sent via email to QAD.AuditService@ams.usda.gov or to the address below.

 
If any information on the original LPS Form 109 changes, then the client must submit a revised, updated LPS Form 109.
