Abstract (Summary)

Internal quality auditing (IQA) in the aerospace defense industry is not optional. Under Part 46 of the Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR) all businesses providing product and services to the U.S. government are required to comply with their contract's quality requirements. The amount of compliance audits organizations receive are directly proportional to the number of government related contracts they possess. Therefore, most organizations are forced to focus IQAs on compliance to survive. The release of AS9100 international aerospace standards in 1999 was pivotal in eliminating these multiple audit requirements that plague the industry. However, the focus on IQA for compliance has remained rooted within the IQA system. Audit experts claim that recent updates included on AS9100 Rev C would change IQA's focus from auditing for compliance to auditing for effectiveness and performance.
