Many activities involve developing a QA Project Plan: modeling projects, geospatial information projects, projects solely using existing information, and those involved with the collection of new information, e.g., the sampling and analysis type of project. This document, Guidance for Quality Assurance Project Plans, is a companion document to the specifications listed in EPA Requirements for QA Project Plans (QA/R-5) (May 2001) and in the EPA Quality Manual. It is written with additional details, suggestions, and examples to help step a user through the QA Project Plan development process. The first chapter answers frequently asked questions. The second chapter focuses primarily on the twenty-four elements of a QA Project Plan as they pertain to a basic environmental data collection activity, whether a research project or a basic monitoring project. The third chapter focuses on the use of existing information when developing a QA Project Plan.
