Quality Assurance is a set of documents provided on paper, or online, or on digital or analog media. This document establishes the minimum requirements for a supplier’s quality system. It identifies the elements of a system to be established and maintained by the supplier to substantiate product conformance to U.S Goverment purchase order requirements and applies to all materials and services when referenced in a purchase order.
Quality System Requirements:
‹•› Documented Procedures: The supplier shall establish and maintain procedures that define how each of the following sections are to be controlled. The forms used must be referenced in the procedures and a copy included where possible.

‹•› Contract Review and Control: The supplier shall establish and maintain a method for reviewing and controlling a Buyer purchase order. This system must include:
‹•› Manufacturing and Inspection Documentation: The supplier shall use a document (called a Traveler) that identifies and controls the manufacturing and inspection operations of Buyer products.

This traveler must include and/or make reference to the following:
‹•› Inspection points: When Quality Assurance Department hold points or Buyer hold points are specified by P.O. requirements, provisions on the traveler must reflect these requirements. Final inspection per P.O. requirements is mandatory for all Buyer products.

Support us and grow your business with us. My goal was to make technical information available with ready access to commonly needed resources, formulas, and reference materials while performing my work as a Technical Support Engineer. The businesses listed in Sponsored Content were carefully selected because of their uniqueness. However, non-sponsored selected ads will be rotated monthly.
ViBa Direct lacks an advisory board to do research and hire writers with the latest technical knowledge. Creating an effective advisory board requires more than an invitation. Without your sponsorship, this is not possible. If your company is interested in placing the company’s logo, brand, event invitation, and other promotional banners and flyers here or on any other pages, please reach out to Customer Service for more detail.
‹•› Records: The supplier shall maintain records of Buyer Purchase Order documentation, manufacturing and inspection travelers, certifications & other records required to produce Buyer products for a minimum of years specified by P.O. requirements. These records shall be made available to Quality Assurance Department or to the Buyer on request.

Reference to the nonconformance shall be documented on the traveler. The supplier has the following options with the nonconforming material:
‹•› Measuring & Test Equipment: The supplier must have the capability and equipment available to inspect or test what he produces to Buyer P.O. requirements. If the supplier does not have the capability to test or inspect the product to Buyer Purchase Order requirements, outside sources may be utilized, provided that Para.
