A 2 Day Workshop for Government Employees

The PWS and QASP are among the most critical documents of the entire contracting process. They determine what your organization will have to live with for years to come. This workshop takes you through the process of writing a performance based Quality Assurance Surveillance Plan (QASP) and shows you, step-by-step, how to deliver a solid, professional QASP. You will learn how the contractor views the PWS and how that impacts your QASP development. You will learn to develop innovative ideas, plans and strategies, in class, tailored to your organization and designed to empower you to build your document into a dynamic, strong, effective work statement and QASP.

All attendees will receive the How to Write a QASP Handbook filled with step-by-step instructions, detailed Checklists, examples, tip sheets, checklists, templates, forms and resources that you will use in writing your QASP.

Particularly attractive features to this workshop are the in-class exercises, which give the attendees hands-on experience with the critical elements of writing a QASP.
