Quality Assurance (QA):
The QA team is an independent team which reports to the QA Manager. This team performs the logical and statistical checks over the data obtained from QC team.
The QA team also reviews the project while it is ongoing and evaluates the Quality reports submitted by the QC team.
If the QA team finds that there is a quality deviation, they will bring the matter to the attention of the Project Manager. The Quality Manager will take immediate corrective and preventive actions.
The QA team will provide the Quality Certification once they ensure that the dataset fully meets the quality acceptance criteria set for the project. Once the Quality Certification is issued, the data is delivered to the customer.
