Integral to our management approach is comprehensive quality management. We expect quality performance from our employees and teammates and have established quality control (QC) (making sure the results of the work done is as per expectation) and quality assurance (QA) (making sure the processes are being followed and maintained correctly to ensure continuing quality) methodologies to facilitate and ensure this performance.

Our QA/QC methods are thorough, organized, and iterative and are characterized by continual and open communication, internally as well as with our client. Upon the issuance of a task order under this contract, and once the Business and Technical Requirements Baseline, the WBS, the Schedule and Cost Baselines are created, we will establish a QC Plan in collaboration with the Seaport-e Program Manager that will include a set of Acceptable Quality Levels (AQLs) for specific parameters that will depend on the nature of the task assigned. The QC Plan will include a schedule for testing the AQLs. This QC Plan and the AQLs contained within will then become the basis for managing the quality process. SageGuild, LLC’s QC processes are aligned with SEI CMMI standards, and focused on ensuring that the work products are delivered as per defined requirements, schedule, cost, standards and documented configurations.
