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.
