Sustainable accommodation in the new economy: Quality methodology

SANE has been developed following a quality assurance methodology defined by FAW - they have been using this methodology also for other projects for a couple of years. However, quality assurance methodology is not a result to be commercially exploited. For that reason, it is not included in next section 3, as a part of services deriving from SANE: neither consulting services, nor as referent for future research.

Main procedures to ensure the quality of work and results include:
- Qualified persons from each contractor will be identified and nominated to take the roles and responsibilities of work package leader.

- Each work package output will follow a standard style, agreed by the contractors and the European Commission project officer, to maximise the value of the project deliverable for the participating countries and the EU; the “graphical image” will be standardised using pre-defined modules for slides and papers and the correct terminology/scientific language of SANE documents will be ensured.

- Each output that has to take user requirements or local site requirements into account, and will be reviewed and approved by the users directly participating to the project.

- Each official output will be subject to a quality check by the quality assurance board.

- Once a review is completed, the corresponding document will be packaged and dispatched, via the project co-ordinator, to the commission at intervals agreed within the project.

- The partner responsible for the deliverable will present the intermediate and final version of the deliverable to the project management, and request confirmation that each deliverable has been accepted.

While the development of the quality methodology has been an important internal result for sane it is does not have the potential for further exploitation.
