NWRPO PROGRAM MANAGEMENT


Program Management includes all the activities and expenses necessary to operate and support Nye County NWRPO activities. These activities include Quality Assurance (QA), staff, salaries, rents, equipment, travel, printing, subscriptions, and certain capital costs.

QUALITY ASSURANCE PROGRAM


NWRPO's Quality Assurance Program (QAP) assures that NWRPO's scientific activities proceed in a systematic and technically sound manner, and that documented instructions and procedures are used to ensure the validity, integrity, preservation and retrievability of all quality-affecting data generated. The NWRPO QAP meets the requirements of ANSI/ASME NQA-1 and the criteria of 10 CFR50, Appendix B.

 

All NWRPO personnel and contractors or subcontractors who perform or manage quality-affecting functions, work under the procedures outlined in the QAP. The NWRPO Director is responsible for assuring all work performed under his or her direction complies with the requirements of the QAP. The Project Quality Assurance Officer is responsible for establishing, implementing and verifying the QAP complies with this policy.
