SiloSmashers Quality Assurance Program

Quality and continuous process improvement are fundamental tenets of the SiloSmashers Team peak-performance approach to IT program management support services. We understand our role on EAGLE II is to support DHS by better aligning technology programs with the DHS mission to enhance mission success. As a registered ISO 9001-2008 corporation, SiloSmashers conducts its internal, day-to-day operations in a manner that achieves quality with standards that continuously improve performance and efficiency. SiloSmashers incorporates that philosophy and its approaches into all delivery services, described below.

Commitment to Quality: Our Investment for DHS Success

We believe that under quality planning (QP), the function of quality assurance (QA) is to validate that processes and procedures are performed according to applicable regulations and standard operating procedures. This is accomplished by reviewing process documentation and observing work in progress. The quality control (QC) function reviews and inspects work products against applicable criteria and standards.

The PM reviews the quality of deliveries monthly/quarterly at SiloSmashers executive levels, and daily/weekly quality measurements informally and formally at the PMO level. The PM provides oversight to the TOMS, and the TOMs provide oversight to technical staff by managing and inspecting daily TO work activities and deliverables. The SiloSmashers Team will consistently leverage these methods to ensure predictable outcomes and results.

Standards and Expectations: Achieving Goals and Objectives Effectively

The standards and metrics we use to manage QA and QC are based on American National Standards Institute (ANSI), National Institute of Standards and Technology, and industry best-practices recorded in professional sources such as the Information Technology Infrastructure Library (ITIL), Project Management Institute (PMI), the Defense Acquisition University (DAU), and SiloSmashers's own best practices. We expect deliverables and performance to meet and exceed standards, and overall work performance to achieve high levels of service through continuous process improvement.

Approach to Quality: Establishing Measurable Results

Our QP methodology is based on industry-leading practices and standards outlined in the Project Management Body of Knowledge, CMMI, and ISO processes. These components make up a repeatable quality life-cycle that will be tailored and scaled to the size, scope, and type of TO project requirement. The methodology provides a balanced approach, focusing on processes and products, and includes QP, QA, and QC.
