Region 8

Quality Assurance Program

The Region 8 Quality Assurance Program (TMS-QA) is located in the Office of Technical and Management Services (TMS).

The primary goal of the EPA Region 8 Quality Management Plan (QMP) “is to ensure that all environmental program produce results that are of known quality and that the results meet the expectations of their intended uses… and that the data must be appropriately documented, and scientifically and legally defensible.”

Region 8's Quality Assurance Program assures that its 6 encompassing states and 27 tribes follow and uphold EPA’s standards thus contributing to the development of science to preserve and improve Region 8’s diverse environmental landscapes.
