1      PROJECT QUALITY PLAN PURPOSE

 

The purpose of this project quality plan is to ensure measures are in place to verify compliance with state, local building codes, support/pilot agency, and Company XYZ process workflow and technical requirements as applicable to the ‘Project XYZProject – Osborn 100 Home Pilot.’  This pilot project is a joint effort between the City of City ABC (CoD), Department Y and Department X (DEPARTMENT X) department of XYZ/Company ABC, providing consulting project management services..

 

This project quality plan will be verified by an independent audit and field inspection performance elements to ensure the following:

 

1.     Assistance is provided only to qualified residents
2.     Pre-audit inspection/testing is completed
3.     Only approved contractors perform the work
4.     Contractors provide itemized materials/labor cost invoicing
5.     Contractor work is consistent with pre-audit/testing results
6.     Unauthorized work is not performed
7.     Post-audit inspection/testing is completed
8.     Resident acceptance is obtained
9.     Resident energy education training occurs
10.  AMI electric meter installations and gas meter relocation to home exteriors occur
11.  Gas mains surveyed and repaired
12.  Gas service lines surveyed and repaired
13.  Meter move-outs completed
14.  Homeowner Paperwork complete

a.     Ownership Deed

(One of the following if above deed not present)

Purchase papers, Quick Claim Deed, Mortgage Coupon or Payment Coupon

15.  Renter Paperwork complete

a.     Rental agreement/lease

b.     Rent receipt

16.  Aid Paperwork complete (Home Heating Credit, SER from MDHS, THAW )

 

 

 

2      QUALITY MANAGEMENT METHOD

 

Due to the low complexity level and low risk nature of this project, the quality plan will employ two common methods that are simplistic in nature as the quality management methods for this project.  The quality methods employed will be administrative compliance audit reviews of the completed documentation required by the identified standards and in-process field inspections of identified activities.  The methods employed will both use checklists to document results.  The completed audits and filed inspections will be recorded and logged.

 

2.1      Quality Plan Processes

 

  • Quality Assurance

Quality assurance activities focus on the processes being used to manage and deliver the solution to evaluate overall project performance on a regular basis. Quality assurance is a method to ensure the project will satisfy the quality standards and will define and record quality reviews, test performance, and customer acceptance.

 

  • Quality Control

Quality control activities are performed continually in-process to verify that project management and project deliverables are of high quality and meet quality standards. Quality control also helps uncover causes of unsatisfactory results and establish lessons learned to avoid similar issues in this and other projects.

 

  • Project Deliverables and Processes Acceptance Criteria

Project team members and key stakeholders agree at the project planning stage on formal project processes and major deliverable acceptance criteria that will be used to evaluate final deliverable results before the results are formally approved.

 

 

2.2      Project Overview

 

Company XYZ, the City of City ABC and their partners are implementing a plan to apply a comprehensive package of energy assistance measures to a large contiguous block of mixed income homes. The impacts on energy affordability and neighborhood quality will be measured and this program may be duplicated in other areas of the city and/or state if successful.

 

113 homes identified by the City of City ABC in the Osborn neighborhood have been chosen for implementation of these energy assistance measures, at no cost to the homeowners (reference Attachment A for a complete list of home addresses). A Home Energy Audit will be performed on each home in the project which will fully determine the scope of weatherization work required for each home to successfully pass this audit (reference Attachment B for the results of the Home Energy Audits). Gas lines in this neighborhood will also be surveyed to identify and repair any gas leaks.

 

Gas meters will be replaced with new gas meters and gas meters in the basements will be moved outside. Residents will receive energy conservation training and related energy bill payment assistance training.

 

Advanced Metering Infrastructure (AMI) modules will be installed on the gas meters. All electric meters will also be replaced by the new AMI meters.

 

Home roofs will be repaired or replaced as necessary. Baseline customer energy usage data will be collected and trended in 2010 and 2011. For more details see project work scope document.

 

2.3      Quality Standards

State of ABC Technical Weatherization Policies

City of City ABC Human Services Application and Evaluation Forms

City of City ABC Audit Documents

NEAT audit for homes requiring furnace replacement

Approved Material/Labor Cost Schedules

Use of Approved Contractors

2.4      Quality Tools

 

  • QUALITY ASSURANCE ACTIVITY

 

XYZ Quality Assurance Audit Checklist will be used for administrative compliance audits of final resident package that includes the following information:

 

  1. CoD/WARM Resident Application/Approval Forms
  • DHS Central Intake Form
  • DHS Weatherization Assistance Application Form
  • DHS Insulation Agreement Form
  • DHS Receipt Home Weatherization Complaint/Appeal Procedure Form
  1. CoD/WARM home pre-audit/inspection/testing forms
  2. CoD/WARM home post- audit/inspection/testing forms
  3. Contractor Invoicing forms
  4. Contractor Work Order Forms
  5. CoD/WARM home post- audit/inspection/testing forms
  6. CoD identification and delivery of additional family services

 

XYZ Quality Assurance Audit verification of project analysis completion and activities as described in table 3.1

 

 

  • QUALITY CONTROL ACTIVITY

 

XYZ Quality Control field inspection checklist will be utilized for independent in-process activities:

10% (~ 10 homes) will be in field process inspected for each category listed:

  • Pre-audit inspection/testing
  • Contractor in-process work inspection
  • Post-audit inspection/testing

 

 

  • JOINT QUALITY ASSURANCE/CONTROL ACTIVITY

 

XYZ inspection checklist will be utilized for:

  • AMI installation verification
  • Gas meter relocation verification

 

  • Corrective Action Request System

 

CARs will be generated for project deficiencies identified and recommended improvements. This will allow evaluation, corrective action, capture of lessons learned for the pilot.

2.5      Quality Lead Responsibilities

 

Bill Doe will be the overall project Quality Consultant for the project.  This will be a part-time role.  Bill will provide guidance to the project team for quality plan development and implementation of identified quality methods/processes.  Anyone can identify quality related deficiencies applicable to this project.  Robert Doe is responsible for the overall quality of construction activities. Notification of quality related deficiencies to Bill, the Project Construction Manager and the Project Manager are mandatory.

3.1      Project Deliverables

 

Milestone Deliverable
Baseline Data ·     CoD of Human Services and Company XYZ will interview each family and collect data to measure income level, arrears status, actual 2009 energy consumption, actual aid received in 2009, family size, number of children, and a baseline assessment of each home’s energy efficiency.

 

Measurement  criteria:

Spreadsheet developed to include data for the identified information and ensure baseline data capture for each family and future comparison to 2010 and 2011 energy usage.

Weatherization ·     Following a rigorous energy audit, each home will undergo a full weatherization to address any energy savings opportunities noted during the audit.  The pilot will leverage the CoD’s existing home inspection methodology and will conduct a post weatherization audit to measure the physical improvement of each home.
