Marketing Text The Quality Plan sets out the scope, rationale, approach and timetable for the quality assurance and the evaluation of the project. It is intended to ensure that Big Bang is subject to on-going peer review and feedback, which is formally captured and assessed at specific points and through specific means. It also sets out the key performance indicators against which the project's quality will be assured, alongside the project objectives.
Description Following initial discussions, A Quality Assurance Plan (QAP) was drafted early in the project and the partnership signed this off in March 2013. The QAP sets out the approach that the project takes to ensure quality, underpinned by on-going monitoring and evaluation. Alongside the project objectives, it also sets out through a set of tables the key performance indicators that are being used to assess both the qualitative and quantitative progress and impact of the project. In particular, the QAP sets out three levels - regular monitoring from the project lead and work package leader in order to implement corrective action or target resources in the appropriate areas.; a facilitated and shared internal evaluation, informed by feedback from the outcomes of monitoring and specific evaluation questionnaires with partners; and an external evaluation (year 2) that will focus on the impact and benefits created by the project, analysing the partnership performance, activities, and the satisfaction of target groups being engaged in the process and the outcome of the project to meet their needs. Activities have also included the capturing and reporting back of the views of local stakeholders through the working groups; a quarterly internal reporting process, with activity reports from partners containing information aligned to the requirements of the QAP; three specific evaluation questionnaires, following each partner meeting and the conclusion of year 1 of the project, which have been summarised and fed back to partners.
