    5. Essential Elements of the Self Evaluation Process Oversight by senior managers. Participation of line managers and their staff. Strengths and problems are determined. Alternative perspectives are solicited. Significant problems are documented and investigated. Senior managers oversee the self-evaluation process. Line managers and their staffs actively participate in the self-evaluation process. Self-evaluations recognize strengths of the program as well as problems that need to be corrected. Alternative perspectives from other organizations or individuals are actively solicited. Significant problems are documented and investigated for root or contributing causes, and actions are taken to correct and prevent recurrence.Senior managers oversee the self-evaluation process.

    10. Maintaining Accreditation Organizations must maintain effective programs. Programs can be brought back to the Accreditation Board. TQP Accreditation is valid for four years. The TQP Accreditation Board may learn that one or more accreditation criteria are not being met for an accredited program. FTCP Chair may initiate a review commensurate with the apparent magnitude of the problem and the organization may be placed on probation. Organizations for those TQPs placed on probation must submit a corrective action plan to the TQP Accreditation Board within 30 days of being notified of probationary status. The TQP Accreditation Board will review the status of probationary programs on a quarterly basis and decide if the organization should remain on probation, if accreditation should be restored, or if accreditation should be withdrawn.The TQP Accreditation Board may learn that one or more accreditation criteria are not being met for an accredited program.

    11. TQP Accreditation Support Office The Office of Health, Safety and Security (HS-10) serves as the TQP Accreditation Support Office. HS-10 responsible for the overall management and coordination.

    12. Accreditation Issues HS-10 maintains the schedule. Sandia Site Office in FY 07. HS Funding for FY-08 Accreditation Activities. Need final input from all sites by May 31, 2007. Call for FY-08 Accreditation Team Members. HS-10 will be maintaining the TQP Site Accreditation schedule and will e-mail it out to the FTCP agents periodically for review/input. So far, we have a few volunteers for the upcoming Sandia Accreditation Team Ed Parsons, Frank Russo, and Ali Ghovanlou but we still need one or two more volunteers. Funding for the site accreditations was not included in the FY 2008 budget process, HS-10 will have to secure additional funding for site accreditations in FY 2008. We hope to do at least 3-4 in FY 2008 depending on funding. We will also be sending out a notice a little later this summer for volunteers for the FY 2008 Accreditations.HS-10 will be maintaining the TQP Site Accreditation schedule and will e-mail it out to the FTCP agents periodically for review/input.
