QUALITY ASSURANCE PROGRAM

HigherEchelon takes the role of providing program management, engineering services and support to the Army, Air Force, Navy and Marines very seriously. The personnel that are provided by HigherEchelon have a high level of competency and are thoroughly vetted prior to joining supported programs and projects. There is a process that ensures the competency and delivers consistent results. Quality in a service organization is highly dependent on communication, especially a clear understanding of the customer expectations and perceptions of work being performed. For this reason, HigherEchelon places a high degree of focus on clarifying the scope and objectives of the project prior to developing a proposal. Essentially, quality begins before the proposal is even delivered. Once a project has been awarded, HigherEchelon focuses on the following review sessions in order to maintain alignment with the customer and exceed expectations:

  • Pre-engagement meetings to ensure full understanding of scope and expectations
  • Interim progress reviews to understand project status, customer satisfaction, and required actions
  • Project closeout and after-action review to understand the customer’s perspective of HigherEchelon’s performance

HigherEchelon monitors and maximizes Quality. Currently, the routine reviews identified previously are held between the HigherEchelon Senior Vice-Presidents and the customer to ensure customer satisfaction. Routine (daily/weekly) Quality Control is managed by the lead HigherEchelon employee on the project and varies between projects. Short duration projects may not have interim reviews, but they will all have pre-engagement and project closeout meetings
