The document provides guidelines to Industrial Environmental Research Laboratory-Cincinnati (IERL-Ci) Project Officers for (1) incorporating quality assurance (QA) criteria in contract procurement and grant awards; (2) monitoring quality assurance of extramural projects; and (3) conducting QA audits for projects involving sampling and analysis activities. The Project Officer's responsibilities are described for the initiation, monitoring, and satisfactory conclusion of contracts, research and demonstration grants, and cooperative agreements of the type normally funded by IERL-Ci. Guidance is provided to assure QA is adequately addressed during project conception and solicitation and that prospective grantees are informed of QA requirements. A technical evaluation system is presented for the evaluation of the QA aspects of proposals and grant applications. The basic elements of an acceptable QA program and of a project QA plan are described, and the Project Officer's role in QA monitoring is discussed. A procedure is described for conducting QA audits of active projects. Checklists are included to assist the Project Officer.
