Additionally, IQS will also perform Programmatic Audits of our client’s existing Quality Assurance and/or Quality Control Management Systems.
To supplement our customer’s Quality Assurance needs, IQS can supply on an as-needed or full-time basis, lead auditors to perform the following:
- Vendor Audits
- Quality Program Audits
Vendor quality begins with determination of a potential bidder’s physical capability to supply goods which conform to the customer’s specification, in the quantities or sizes estimated and within the likely time frame required.
Physical and financial capabilities are established independently, based upon objective observation and questioning, and later synthesized into a composite evaluation. The criteria for capabilities evaluation results from a personal visit to a proposed vendor’s facility, where the lead auditor:
- Evaluates plant equipment
- Interviews personnel
- Reviews organization and procedures
- Investigates financial data
- Obtains references
- Formulates data, evaluates data, and offers final recommendations to clients.
