The DOE requires laboratory partners and contractors (called "contractors" for simplicity throughout this document) to validate the effectiveness of their Contractor Assurance System (CAS) processes. This consensus-developed Best Practice provides contractor management with a framework for validating CAS effectiveness. An effective CAS, when used appropriately by management to inform decision making, provides reasonable assurance that the contractor will sustain safe and compliant mission execution and operational excellence. Consistency and efficiency can be improved across the DOE enterprise by using a common framework which includes key attributes to validate CAS effectiveness. The framework also identifies current approaches, which can be used to validate CAS effectiveness.
