SLAC’s Contractor and Quality Assurance (CQA) team is unveiling a new lessons-learned website, which is designed to capture and share lessons people learn from their experiences working at the laboratory and across the DOE complex. The goal is to avoid repeating past problems, anticipate undesirable consequences so they can be mitigated or avoided, replicate best practices and improve work processes.
SLAC’s Action Tracking System (ATS) and Integrated Assessment Schedule (IAS) are both tools integral to SLAC’s Contractor Assurance System (CAS), and recent improvements have been made to make these tools easier to use.
Last August, I joined SLAC as the laboratory’s contractor assurance manager. This is my first column since I was introduced to you all last year, and I thought it would be a good opportunity for me to provide an overview of what SLAC’s Contractor Assurance System (CAS) is all about.
