requirement for QA monitoring, which was one of the contract-evaluation factors for award. In response to the solicitation, the contractor submitted a technical proposal that specified QA measures.

The statement of work included in the DTRA solicitation for NTPR program support indeed contains the following requirement for quality assurance: “The contractor shall provide quality assurance monitoring for the NTPR Program in the areas of database management, dose assessment, and veteran assistance.” As stated by DTRA (Schaeffer, 2002e): “In response to the solicitation, JAYCOR/SAIC submitted a technical proposal that specified quality assurance measures in the program task areas of database management, radiation exposure assessment, and veteran assistance.” The committee did not have the opportunity to review the technical proposal submitted by JAYCOR and SAIC and consequently did not see the specified QA measures.
