The Office of Research and Development (ORD), through its Office of Monitoring and Technical Support, is responsible for developing an Agency-wide quality assurance program to enable the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to implement its regulatory mission and associated monitoring functions. The major thrust of this document is to identify and justify the resources required by ORD to develop the quality assurance tools, techniques, and services needed by other program offices, the Regions, and the States to generate valid data. This five-year planning document describes the quality assurance program in terms of goals, objectives, and functional elements; summarizes the current status of ORD's ongoing quality assurance efforts; discusses Agency and program needs; and delineates the resources and approaches required to develop and carry out a dynamic quality assurance program which will ensure scientifically valid environmental measurements.
