Sandia Field Office receives Technical Qualification Program reaccreditation

Sandia Field Office receives Technical Qualification Program accreditation

The Sandia Field Office has been recognized for receiving Technical Qualification Program (TQP) reaccreditation from the Department of Energy. Just four DOE sites have ever obtained TQP accreditation and all are part of NNSA.

NNSA Acting Administrator Neile Miller congratulated SFO in achieving reaccreditation of their TQP and on their commitment to a competent federal workforce.

A multidisciplinary team from DOE conducted the TQP review at SFO last December. An accreditation board, convened by Patricia Worthington by unanimous decision, recommended to DOE Deputy Secretary that he grant TQP reaccreditation to SFO. The memo was approved and signed by the Deputy Secretary on April 8, 2013.

A DOE order requires organizations to conduct periodic self-assessments to evaluate the effectiveness of their TQP. Accreditation is voluntary, goes above and beyond requirements and demonstrates that the site has an effective program in place. Accreditation is valid for four years.
