Quality Task Group

The FSSB’s Quality Task Group is primarily comprised of at least one member from each OSAC subcommittee to provide a quality perspective for the subcommittee. Task group members are selected based on their experience and roles in quality assurance/control including quality assurance techniques such as lean six sigma, root cause analysis, quality audits, problem solving, project planning, risk management, and the use of quality tools/concepts and/or performing assessments/audits to those requirements. The group is available for consulting with the FSSB and all OSAC committees on quality related issues. Task group members work together to provide guidance and resources to the FSSB and OSAC committees on issues of quality and to review and submit comments on standards, technical publications, definitions, and other OSAC and FSSB documents, with an emphasis on the quality aspects and impacts on forensic science results.
