Software Quality Assurance Task Group

Software Quality Assurance Charter

The Software QA Task Group (SQATG) serves Energy Facility Contractors Group (EFCOG) and its members by identifying, analyzing, assessing, and recommending methods that support effective implementation of Software Quality Assurance (SQA) requirements and resolve SQA program performance issues.

In particular, SQATG focuses on cross-cutting issues across DOE sites or across SQA functions. Accordingly, the group engages in regularly planned meetings to report on performance, assess and categorize issues, and prepare initiatives responsive to this charter. The SQATG measures may include interpreting complex-wide requirements, deriving techniques and tools, disseminating lessons learned, and establishing best practices.
