Auditing processes for project life cycle phases

ByAbdul Razzak Rumane

Quality audit is a systematic, planned, independent and documented process to verify or evaluate and report on the degree of compliance to the agreed-upon quality criteria, or the specification or contract requirements of the product, services or project. Construction is the translation of the owner’s goals and objectives, by the contractor, to build the facility as stipulated in the contract documents, plans and specifications on schedule and within budget. Construction projects comprise a cross-section of many different participants. These participants are both influenced by and depend on each other in addition to “other players” involved in the construction process. The quality audit process helps the completion of construction projects by achieving construction project quality requirements as well as balancing triple constraints. Procurement in construction projects is an organizational method, process and procedure to obtain the required services, systems and products.
