If your mortgage financing transaction is mission critical to you or your organization, who can you trust? Do what the GSA, DOD & NASA do - hire an ISO 9001:2015 Certified finance company, like MortgageQuote Canada Corp. (MQCC)

What does MortgageQuote Canada Corp. (MQCC), US General Services Administration (GSA), Department of Defense (DOD), National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) have in common? 

Recognition of the importance of higher-level quality standards for complex and critical items; namely, acceptance of a Certified ISO 9001:2015 Quality Management System to establish vendor credibility for complex and critical projects.

The below excerpt speaks for itself:


46.202-4 Higher-level contract quality requirements.

(a) Agencies shall establish procedures for determining when higher-level contract quality requirements are necessary, for determining the risk (both the likelihood and the impact) of nonconformance, and for advising the contracting officer about which higher-level standards should be applied and included in the solicitation and contract. Requiring compliance with higher-level quality standards is necessary in solicitations and contracts for complex or critical items (see 46.203)

  • 46.203 Criteria for use of contract quality requirements. The extent of contract quality requirements, including contractor inspection, required under a contract shall usually be based upon the classification of the contract item (supply or service) as determined by its technical description, its complexity, and the criticality of its application
    • (a) Technical description. Contract items may be technically classified as— 
      • (1) Commercial (described in commercial catalogs, drawings, or industrial standards; see Part 2); or 
      • (2) Military-Federal (described in Government drawings and specifications). 
    • (b) Complexity
      • (1) Complex items have quality characteristics, not wholly visible in the end item [ie.; financial underwriting and conditions fulfillment], for which contractual conformance must be established progressively through precise measurements, tests, and controls applied during purchasing, manufacturing, performance, assembly, and functional operation either as an individual item or in conjunction with other items. [ie; the complete origination, underwriting and funding process].
      • (2) Noncomplex items have quality characteristics for which simple measurement and test of the end item are sufficient to determine conformance to contract requirements. [ie: buying groceries]
    • (c) Criticality
      • (1) A critical application of an item is one in which the failure of the item could injure personnel or jeopardize a vital agency mission. A critical item may be either peculiar, meaning it has only one application, or common, meaning it has multiple applications. 
      • (2) A noncritical application is any other application. Noncritical items may also be either peculiar or common.

 or when the technical requirements of the contract require—

  1. Control of such things as design, work operations, in-process controls, testing, and inspection [internal & external audit]; or 
  2. Attention to such factors as organization, planning, work instructions, documentation control, and advanced metrology. 
(b) Examples of higher-level quality standards include overarching quality management system standards such as ISO 9001 [ISO 9001:2015 is the current standard as at 2017], ASQ/ANSI E4, ASME NQA-1, SAE AS9100, SAE AS9003, and ISO/TS 16949, and product or process specific quality standards such as SAE AS5553.
