Quality Assurance Program
HE 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 HE 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, HE 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, HE focuses on the following review sessions in order to maintain alignment with the customer and exceed expectations:
HE monitors and maximizes Quality. Currently, the routine reviews identified previously are held between the HE President and the customer to ensure customer satisfaction. As the business grows, these responsibilities will be shared among the other two Partners and, eventually, a management staff. Routine (daily/weekly) Quality Control is managed by the lead HE 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.
