Quality Assurance

Our Quality Management System (QMS) is structured around interlinked processes that provide the necessary implementation controls to ensure customer and regulatory requirements are met and continual process improvement is achieved. Our QMS provides the basis for policies and procedures that implement a comprehensive quality management system. These processes are those that define activities that are directly necessary to the delivery of products and services, and those that provide the supporting infrastructure to enable the direct processes to operate under the required controls, and continually improve.

Quality Management System Overview - Level 1:
Provides employees and customers with a guide to how Continental Tide executes projects and delivers products. Level 1 describes each of our processes and their supporting documentation to properly execute each step in our QMS.

Organizational Policies and Procedures - Level 2:
Contains the policies and procedures that employees utilize throughout their workday. Level 2 provides a detailed explanation of each policy and procedure and its importance in providing quality products and services to customers.  

Functional Procedures and Work Instructions - Level 3:
Contains the actual forms, documents and work instructions used by employees during project execution.

Our organization, processes and procedures are all geared to the ultimate goal of supporting the war-fighter and keeping the U.S. Navy #1 in the world. All facets of the company are structured to ensure that our teams execute and deliver the project on-time and on-budget with quality results.
