Region 7 Quality Management Plan
To implement Agency policy, EPA Laboratories, Program Offices, and Regional Offices are required to prepare a QMP covering all intramural and extramural environmental programs which generate and use environmental data. This QMP was prepared according to EPA Requirements for Quality Management Plans, EPA QA/R-2, March 2001, reissued May 2006 and Chapter 3 of the EPA Quality Manual for Environmental Programs, CIO 2105-P-01, May 5, 2000 to document the quality assurance policies and management structure to be used in implementing the Region 7 quality system.

The QMP encompasses data directly generated by Region 7 programs, their contractors, or grantees as well as data obtained for Region 7 programs from other sources. The QMP also covers environmental data that Region 7 programs require States, tribal governments, and grantees to collect.
