5. Quality Peer Review

The agency developed its Quality Peer Review program as a tool to enhance its services to the public by assuring quality work and communicating best practices throughout the agency. (See measure 3.1.4. and the accompanying discussion of QPR).

By the end of fiscal year 2001, the Commission will have piloted its Quality Peer Review (QPR) program covering outreach, education and technical assistance activities and initial contact/intake functions. The pilot will achieve four basic results: establish objective, measurable standards linked to implementation of the Commission's Comprehensive Enforcement Program (CEP); establish techniques to identify best practices; develop methods to share best practices throughout the agency to improve the implementation of the CEP; and foster a climate of continuous improvement in its private sector enforcement program.
