Qualified Suppliers List

TACOM – QSL “WHAT IS IT” : 

TACOM – QSL “WHAT IS IT” A QSL is a list of suppliers’ facilities that have been evaluated and determined to be acceptable based on conformance to applicable quality, manufacturing or design process criteria for a family of products. Used To Establish and Maintain a List of Pre-Qualified Sources for a Family of Products Allows for more Consistent Delivery of Products that Conform to Customer Requirements

QSL ORGANIZATIONAL STRUCTURE:

Slide10: 

Unique TACOM Program Established and Administered IAW all FAR and DFAR Regulations Pilot initiated 28 July 1998 Modeled after DLA DSCP’s Program Objectives Reduce Administrative Lead Times & Costs Use of Pre-Qualified Suppliers Electronic Commerce/Electronic Data Interchange Use Commercial Practices Improve Consistent Delivery of Conforming Parts Reduce/Eliminate Gov’t Source Inspection TACOM – QSL BACKGROUND

QPL, QML & QSL … What’s the Difference?: 

QPL, QML & QSL … What’s the Difference? Qualified Products List (QPL) Products that have met the qualification requirements stated in the applicable [product] specification Qualified Manufacturers List (QML) Facilities that have been evaluated and determined to be acceptable based on the testing and approval of a sample specimen and conformance to the applicable [product] specification Qualified Suppliers List (QSL) Facilities that have been evaluated and determined to be acceptable based on conformance to applicable quality, manufacturing or design process criteria for a family of products

Slide12: 

How is QSL Different from (CP)2?

Selecting a QSL Family of Products: 

Selecting a QSL Family of Products Products Manufactured Using Similar Processes. Same Contractors make Many of the Products. Routinely Many Bidders. Coordinate QSL Lists with Small Business. It Must Be Cost Effective!!

Slide14: 

The TACOM QSL Process EVALUATE SUPPLIER RE-QUALIFY IN 3 YEARS IDENTIFY QSL PRODUCT/SERVICE LINE (NSNs) PREPARE JUSTIFICATION & ECONOMIC ANALYSIS DEVELOP CRITERIA & PROVISIONS CORE QUALITY REQUIREMENTS PRODUCT UNIQUE REQUIREMENTS CONSISTENT W/INDUSTRY NORMS DCM/MSC OPINION SUPPLIER SUBMITS QSL APPLICATION SOLICIT INDUSTRY COMMENT CBD ANNOUNCEMENTS PRE-QUAL. CONFERENCE QSL PROGRAM INITIATED UPDATE CRITERIA & PROVISIONS SUPPLIER HISTORY DECISION QSL BASED SOLICITATIONS & CONTRACT AWARDS GENERATE QSL LISTING AUDIT REQUIRED? DCMA Yes No
