Special Inspection Approval Program
Special Inspection Agency Comments
Stephen R. Johnson, Vice President and Materials Department Manager, GeoTek, Inc., Las Vegas, NV
“The best part about this process is that it allowed us to review our current program with an eye on improvement. In fact, we enacted several beneficial procedures to meet these requirements and help us provide better service to our clients.
We’ve had some unexpected benefits. Accreditation has also helped us qualify with a nationally-based client that typically requires agencies to follow a client-defined internal process for assessment. Because of the accreditation, we developed a relationship with this client and were able to stand out from our competitors.
I believe our accreditation also had an indirect effect in developing other qualification-based proposals, and ultimately the IAS accreditation helps with this process.”
