Quality Assurance Surveillance Plan (QASP)
The goal of QASP is to provide Government surveillance of the contractor's/subcontractor's quality control system, to verify the system's effectiveness, and to ascertain the contractor's ability to deliver product meeting contract requirements. Quality Assurance Surveillance is used to determine contractor compliance with technical and performance requirements. Download a sample quality assurance surveillance checklist, to be used by Commodity Procurement COR's verifying compliance with FAR Clause 52.246-11.
