Letter of Compliance

Chase Defense Partners quality management system fully compliant with ISO 9001:2008, ISO 9001:2015, and AS9100D.

Chase has elected not to seek certification because of the abundant audits conducted by the Defense Contract Management Agency (DCMA). With approximately 90% of our business involved in government markets, the DCMA has conducted over 30 QMS Audits of the Chase QMS since January 2014. The DCMA carries out audits in the same way a third-party registrar would. Their last triennial audit conducted in 2015 consisted of 5 auditors for 5 days. Certification to the quality standards will not reduce the frequency or eliminate the DCMA audits, hence the incentive to certify is absent. In addition to the DCMA QMS Audits, Chase has undergone QMS Audits by Teledyne Brown, Raytheon, Lockheed Martin, Parker Hannifin, space launch companies, and others. The results of the DCMA and Customer audits over the course of 4 years has only raised only a few nonconformance that were promptly corrected.

The Chase QMS is completely electronic. Documents and records are available upon request.
