Mid Atlantic Maritime Academy QA for all projects and task orders is achieved as part of the overall Quality Control through management practices and procedures. Mid Atlantic Maritime Academy structures its QA approach through the Quality Management System (QMS) in place and certified through Det Norske Veritas. Each task order has a Task Order point of contact/leader. The technical team put together under the leader captures the staff expertise required for the task. Our Task Leaders embrace QMS and QA standards from several perspectives. First, the leadership component is well understood and the understanding that the leader as well as the personnel within the team are level contributors to task execution. Each person serves as a critical element in positive representation of Mid Atlantic Maritime Academy. Each individual is responsible for the quality of training delivered as part of the task order. This is done through teamwork and ownership of the process of developing and delivering the curriculum.

High-Quality Deliverables

Mid Atlantic Maritime Academy Quality Assurance (QA) plan includes formal procedures for Task Order performance and/or milestone reviews. A pre-delivery meeting covers the methodology and range and depth of deliverables. The task order leader chairs these efforts to ensure the customer is served in a superb manner. The SeaPort-e Program Manager figures into this execution plan at every level prior to launching the deliverable. Follow up “lessons learned”, if not previously incorporated, are considered for applicability in the execution of the task. The informal aspect also includes peer reviews of efforts and the concept of team ownership and responsibility for the curriculum. Mid Atlantic Maritime Academy also makes it a standard practice to keep the customer involved in the actual course development tempo for the training days.

Management Review

All performance reviews will be required in the Statement of Work. These reviews will be linked to the lifecycle of the task if the training is of considerable duration. At least one QA review will be required for any Task Order and any and all Quality Assurance reviews will include at a minimum the Task Order Leader. Delivery will not be made until each deliverable has been reviewed for applicability and modifications are incorporated. The department head, whether part of the team nucleus or not, shall make this peer review.

Corrective and Preventive Measures of seaport-e

Project success is dependent upon the accurate incorporation of applicable training elements within the developed curriculum. The accurate generation of curriculum by the Mid Atlantic Maritime Academy staff is accomplished by subject matter expertise in leadership roles for a particular course, and through requirements definition, and performance reviews. The need for corrective measures is clarified through critiques and is put into place through a well-developed modification process as defined by our QMS.
