This chapter describes considerations for the planning, composition, and issuance of quality assurance support contract(s). These contracts assign specific Government contract quality assurance functions to be performed at a contractor location and serve as the authoritative link between NASA and the designated quality assurance support contractor.
Contracting officers shall issue quality assurance support contracts in sufficient time to permit accomplishment of assigned quality assurance functions coincident with the commencement of contractor work operations (Requirement 43327).
6.3.1 Contracting officers shall include the following contents in quality assurance support contracts:
a. Applicable requirements and text from the template provided in Appendix C of this NPR (Requirement 43330).
b. Identification of quality assurance surveillance functions to be performed by the support contractor utilizing the template provided in Appendix C of this NPR (Requirement 43331).
6.3.2 Quality assurance support contracts are not to include performance of inherently Governmental functions as defined in 48 CFR 7, Subpart 7.5 (Requirement 43332 6.3.2(1).
(Note: Final product acceptance, denoted by signature approval, is defined as an inherently Governmental function and may only be performed by Federal Government employees. Support contractors may, however, recommend acceptance of a product or service or act as a liaison for a MRB or other similar function.)
