The document is designed to provide, in one location, a summary of details to be considered in the development of task-specific quality assurance plans for research tasks at the Health Effects Research Laboratory, Research Triangle Park, North Carolina. It is directed toward taskmasters as they design plans for 'in-house' and contracted research tasks. The logical structure of a research task is analyzed, from the initial planning stages through report preparation. The production of high quality data is dependent on consistently high quality efforts by all associated task personnel during all phases of task execution. Thus, guidelines for the taskmaster for planning and maintaining quality in each of those phases are presented. In addition, methods for monitoring and documenting data quality are discussed.
