The document provides conceptual guidelines for the development, implementation and evaluation of research task quality assurance plans for staff of the Health Effects Research Laboratory (HERL/RTP) of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, Research Triangle Park, North Carolina. It is designed to assist project officers in applying quality assurance concepts to each phase of a research task, from the initial planning through final report preparation. It is designed to assist the management staff in evaluating these plans and their implementation, for intramural as well as extramural tasks. The guidelines describe the policy of HERL/RTP with respect to quality assurance, the structure of the quality assurance organization, and outlines specific quality assurance responsibilities for various staff positions. They also analyze the research task with respect to the various steps which project officers may take to ensure the highest possible data quality commensurate with resource limitations. Following this discussion, more specific guidelines relating to dosing activities and animal care are provided.
