Quality Assurance Manual (QAM)

Quality assurance at Fermilab is integrated into one labwide Quality Assurance Management System. It is a set of interrelated elements that Fermilab uses to plan, direct, control, assure and improve how quality policies and procedures are established, implemented, and monitored. The Quality Assurance Manual is a living document that contains Fermilab’s policies and procedures designed to manage quality in accordance with the requirements of the DOE Quality Assurance Order. Quality assurance applies to all work conducted at Fermilab, and we have worked diligently to establish an overarching institutional approach to QA at the laboratory. This approach applies program controls using a graded approach based on an analysis of identified risks where work is to be performed. It also outlines requirements necessary to consistently meet the contract obligations throughout the laboratory.
