The provision of Total Quality Assurance embraces the unique challenges and responsibilities associated with public sector service and infrastructure delivery.
The delivery of public sector services requires a diligent and thorough approach with adherence to stringent regulations, assurance of public safety and the delivery of services to strict standards and schedules. Intertek’s assurance, testing, inspection, and certification solutions ensure the safety, quality and cost effectiveness of public sector services and infrastructure.
Our services enable the public sector to identify and mitigate the intrinsic risk of operations, supply chains and business process. Working with the public sector we ensure that products and services meet and exceed quality, safety and performance standards. Our range of inspection services can then validate performance against specification leading to certification of products and services where appropriate.
