All Kratos processes are ISO 9001:2000 certified and registered. This international quality standard is based upon proven practices demonstrated by top performing organizations that consistently produce quality goods and services.

This certification is a validation of Kratos’ commitment to provide quality services and to focus on total customer satisfaction. As a registered ISO 9001:2000 company, our management processes conforms to a system that ensures timely monitoring as well as quality products and services that meet or exceed our customer's requirements. Using the tenets of ISO 9001:2000, a QA plan, approved by the Program Manager (PM), will be required from each subcontractor. The plan will allow for spot checks by the PM and/or our Task Order Manager (TOM), and processes for peer to peer QA reviews in addition to other checkpoints. The PM and/or TOM will initiate a team kickoff meeting, including government and team representatives, following the issuance of any task order. The purpose of the kickoff meeting will be to review the project plan, schedule and QA expectations to ensure full understanding of the project requirements, reiterate the open lines of communication and agree to a project team review schedule. During this meeting, all foreseeable potential issues and pitfalls will be discussed. Frequent informal reviews will be held with the technical leads and formal reviews will be conducted with the government manager(s) on an agreed upon schedule or as specified in the SOW.
