The contractor is responsible for the delivery of quality services and supplies to the Government. Perfect performance is not required for the control of quality to be satisfactory. Specific service delivery must be in substantial compliance with contract requirements and be suitable for the intended purpose of the contract. The overall control of quality must meet the specified performance thresholds for each required service.

1.8.2. Quality Control Program (QCP): The contractor shall develop a Daily Inspection Report and maintain a quality control plan to ensure Fire Alarm, Suppression, Sprinkler and Monitoring Systems services are performed in accordance with appropriate directives and commonly accepted commercial practices. A work schedule for providing the monthly ITM is required and shall be addressed again in item 5.1.
