To meet Seapower 21 objectives and to increase efficiency, the Naval Sea Systems Command (NAVSEA) Warfare Centers established the SeaPort Enhanced (SeaPort-e) Multiple Award Contract (MAC) vehicle, using a Web-based, e-business procurement portal to facilitate performance-based service acquisition, leverage buying power, improve business intelligence, and reduce cycle time. In October 2004, the Virtual SYSCOM Commanders formalized an agreement to expand the ordering community of SeaPort-e to include all Virtual SYSCOM activities and to leverage the success of SeaPort-e in achieving the aforementioned objectives across the Virtual SYSCOM.

Quality Assurance Program

Central to MorganFranklin’s definition of Quality Management, and executed for each awarded task order contract, is the creation of a Quality Control Plan (QCP). The QCP describes the overall approach to quality, which includes a self-inspection plan, defines the responsible official from MorganFranklin, explains how we safeguard and protect privacy information, and outlines the procedures that will be used to maintain quality of service, access to services, and cost containment and reduction strategies. Quality Assurance (QA) resources are available at the corporate level, but implementation and execution occur locally, driven by the requirements of individual customers. Our quality processes combine the capabilities of the program organization, the corporate management structure, and our administrative organization to ensure that all contract deliverables are quality products and produced on time. All program personnel are responsible for conducting work in accordance with contract requirements and our high technical standards. The types of QA/QC reviews and audits that we conduct are elaborated on below:

QA/QC Reviews & Audits Performed by MorganFranklin Team

Review/Audit: Self-Checking Reviews
Description: Initial quality inspection for a task; team members check for correctness, completeness, consistency, conformance to standards, and fulfillment of objectives.

Review/Audit: Peer Reviews
Description: Carried out by a co-worker; check quality, spread experience, and communicate ideas and approaches.

Review/Audit: Walkthroughs
Description: Structured sessions (compared to peer reviews) that deal with a discrete unit of work; identify potential problems, uncover inconsistencies, and educate the audience; encourage critical analysis and, therefore, are effective for requirements and design reviews.

Review/Audit: Formal Reviews
Description: Held to obtain agreement on an issue or acceptance of a product by the client; typically held at the conclusion of a phase or upon completion of a milestone.

Review/Audit: Audits
Description: Serve as checkpoints to determine whether the Quality Program is being followed and is achieving the desired results.

The goal of our quality approach is to achieve, sustain, and improve deliverable quality and client service.
