As an organizational entity that is separate from operations, QA staff can effectively assess the quality and integrity of Prevalere’s total work product. During these assessments, any significant inspection observation is immediately communicated to the CEO, as well as the Vice Presidents of the respective operating groups. And while the QA Department is an independent entity, the members serve as consultants to scientists and managers who are continually improving Prevalere’s systems, processes, and procedures. These initiatives are proven to have a direct, positive effect on the overall quality of Prevalere's work.
