Harry Reid Center for Environmental Studies
Quality Assurance Division

HRC >> Quality Assurance

The Harry Reid Center for Environmental Studies administers the Nevada System of Higher Education Quality Assurance Programs.  The experienced staff of the QA Division are available to help faculty, staff, and student researchers meet financial assistance award requirements for conducting research using a QA program. The QA staff can also provide short classes, workshops, and training sessions on various subjects related to research quality such as quality control and scientific notebook use.

More and more public and private funding sources require approved QA programs before funding is awarded or a contract is approved.  The Quality Assurance Division provides quality assurance services (to both public and private entities) that enable organizations and individuals to take advantage of funding opportunities that would otherwise be unavailable.

Implementing quality assurance practices can save money by decreasing startup times, schedule delays, and nonconforming items.
