Quality Assurance Program:

Several of Avanco’s projects have been appraised at Capability Maturity Model Integration CMMI® Maturity Level 2 for Development v1.3.  In addition, Avanco is in the process of institutionalizing ISO 9001:2008 quality standards across the company. As such, we have developed a Corporate Quality System that defines our approach for maintaining monitoring and maximizing quality on all of our engagements.   

We have established a baseline set of metrics that we use to measure our performance at both the organizational level and the contract task order level, as appropriate. These metrics are designed to assure that our customers’ goals for high-quality performance and customer satisfaction are achieved on every contract.   We strongly believe that if our deliverables and processes are not measurable they cannot be improved.

To provide independent monitoring of performance quality and standards, Avanco will utilize a Quality Manager (QM).  The Quality Manager will work directly with the Avanco Program Manager and Task Order Managers; however, he will report directly to the Avanco President/CEO and will maintain close communications with project stakeholders.  Avanco’s QM will establish the frequency and scope of periodic quality audits and inspections. The QM will use the results of in-progress reviews, quality program reviews, customer satisfaction surveys, cost accounting reports, visits to the work site, and inspection of individual deliverables to assess the overall quality of performance on specific TO contracts.
