Grace Consulting, Inc. has considered quality assurance/quality control as one of our top priorities since the inception of the firm. In addition to the concepts described regarding TOTAL QUALITY, GCI has complete QA/QC packages for all of our field sampling for air emissions work, and also requires QA/QC of all engineering and science activities.
Tyson Stiles, QSTI and Quality Manager for GCI, in conjunction with the Senior Staff, have worked tirelessly to implement a comprehensive Quality Assurance Program, which applies for initial preparatory activities through report generation. This includes the following measures:
- Technical staff follows standard operation procedures under the direct supervision of a senior staff member.
- Any field measurements taken are directly recorded on field data forms and input into an on-site computer.
- Proper chain-of-custody is followed for all samples collected in the field for analysis at the analytical laboratory.
- All data records are filed and archived.
- Data submittals and reports are validated, reviewed, and approved by management prior to release.
