The Honolulu District, U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) in partnership with Naval Facilities Engineering Command (NAVFAC) Hawaii, Associated Builders and Contractors (ABC), General Contractors Association of Hawaii (GCA) and Building Industry Association of Hawaii (BIA) offers the Construction Quality Management for Contractors Class (CQM-C) on a monthly basis.
The mutual goal of the Contractor and the Government is to achieve a quality product, executed safely, on time, and within budget. Quality management succeeds through a partnership between the Contractor and the Government. The Contractor is responsible for the daily Quality Control (QC) of the work, while the Government through Quality Assurance (QA) ensures that the Contractor's Quality Control program is working effectively.
Effective CQM-C supports worker pride, results in favorable recognition, and has the potential to increase the Contractor's profit margin.
