DOT Quality Services Develops Standards Of Performance, Builds Quality Systems, And Creates And Conducts Supplier Audit Programs
Our supplier qualification audits are conducted by experienced quality professionals with technical and quality system certification credentials. More importantly, all supplier evaluations are done with a customer’s perspective to specific contracts, state specifications, and industry codes.
DOTQS produces detailed reports that contain understandable objective evidence to support observations. The report provides a means of “seeing and hearing” what was observed during the audit, which enables you to make better decisions about suppliers, and which enhances confidence in supplier selection. In addition, the effectiveness of the supplier’s quality system is documented for future reference.
DOTQS personnel are located in Chicago, IL; Brimley, MI; Springfield, IL; and Palatka, Fl.
For Owners Of State Transportation Projects
State transportation departments who use these services believe that having a well-qualified group of suppliers who demonstrate sustained ability is essential for prime contractors to choose successful teams. DOTQS utilizes experienced quality professionals and engineers with technical and quality system credentials to assure an effective assessment service for a single project or to maintain an approved supplier group of fifty suppliers or more.
Owners also use DOTQS services to free up their own resources. Because these regular assessments deliver a more ready supplier group, the time and focus of owner personnel is better utilized on more complex issues in their departments.
