Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

The QA typically reports to the Contracting Officer’s Representative (COR) or Project Engineer on their time at the construction site.
QC stands for “quality control”. The contractor is required under many prime contracts to provide an onsite quality control manager. They are employed by the prime contractor and ensure that all subcontractors and suppliers on the project are working and supplying equipment/materials within the confines of the contract documents.

Quality control in construction is the systematic process on reviewing and inspecting the construction project daily in an effort to ensure all staked businesses and contractors that are involved with altering the physical property of the project are doing so within the requirements of the contract documents.
Proper quality control ensures that the project is built in accordance to the contract documents. This ensures the government is getting what they are paying for.
The construction quality control manager’s primary duty is to ensure that the project is built per the plans and specifications. On government contracts, the contract documents can be extensive and convoluted at times. The QC Manager is there to ensure the government “gets what they pay for”.
All prime contracts are different. As such, the requirements for the quality control manager can change. But many of the prime contract requirements for quality control managers are: Have and active CQM (#784) certification, have 5 years as a quality control manager or a construction manager with 10 years’ experience, OHSA 30-hr card issued by the Department of Labor, and active first aid / CPR certification.
Most prime contracts do not require a degree. Design-Build deliveries or more complicated prime contracts may require the QCM to have a degree. If this is the case, the requirements for the degree usually require graduate engineer, graduate architect, or a graduate of construction management.
