Gallup, Inc.    

Gallup's quality assurance programs emphasize that quality is the responsibility of every employee. Quality practices are designed not simply to identify and correct errors after they have been made but to provide ongoing feedback to staff on how quality can be improved. The subtle shift in emphasis is away from finding errors and fixing them to doing it right the first time. Gallup believes that this approach produces what many believe to be impossible -- higher quality at a lower cost.

Gallup's research and management Quality Assurance/Quality Control (QA/QC) Plans build on its stringent methodological standards and exacting quality protocols while customizing key practices to meet the objectives of individual task orders.
