Work Product #4:Florida Department of Health’s Methods and Assessment Procedures Planfor the Federal BEACH ProgramThis detailed methods and assessment procedures plan will be used to detect levelsof pathogen indicators and to identify short-term increases in pathogen indicators inFlorida’s coastal recreational waters to protect public health. The original work product plan outlined a methods and assessment procedures plan that would include qualityassurance/quality control (QA/QC) procedures, data quality objectives (DQOs), standardoperating procedures (SOPs), and a quality assurance project plan (QAPP). To avoidredundancy, the methods and assessment plan is the QAPP and all other categories areincluded in this document. The QAPP describes the technical activities and QA/QC procedures used to ensure that data meets specified standards. The plan develops andimplements QA/QC procedures to produce high quality data and to minimize the loss of data. This plan also contains DQOs and SOPs to clarify study objectives, define theappropriate type of data, and specify tolerable levels of error.There are three phases to the QAPP: Planning, Implementation, and Assessment.The planning phase includes DQO statements that help to clarify study objectives, defineappropriate types of data, and specify tolerable levels of potential decision errors used asthe basis for establishing the quality and quantity of data needed to support decisions. Theimplementation phase translates the DQOs from the planning phase into measurement performance specifications and describes QA/QC procedures and SOPs that will providethe information needed. The final phase, assessment, focuses on determining whether thedata meet the necessary requirements.
