The Agency-wide quality assurance policy stipulates that every monitoring and measurement project must have a written and approved Quality Assurance (QA) Project Plan. This applies to extra-mural as well as internal projects. All successful applicants for financial assistance must therefore prepare and submit a Quality Assurance Project Plan. This document describes the sixteen elements which must be considered for inclusion in all Quality Assurance Project Plans and establishes criteria for plan preparation, review, and approval. All project plans must describe procedures which will be used to document and report precision, accuracy, representativeness, comparability, and completeness of environmental measurements.
