BUILD READINESS REVIEW (BRR)
Supplier Quality Assurance Requirements Text:
18QC01
QUALITY SYSTEM COMPLIANCE
All suppliers shall maintain quality system certification to a current
revision of ANSI/ASQ/ISO 9001:2000, (Model for Quality Assurance in
Design/Development, Production, Installation, and Servicing) or the
current revision of The Society of Automotive Engineers document
SAE AS9100 (Quality Management System Requirements for
Suppliers, or to a current revision of the ISO /TS16949 : 2009 Quality
System Certification.
Registration with, or certification by, an independent third party certification
body or registrar is required. Evidence of such registration or certification to
this quality standard may show compliance to this requirement without
further actions by ATK Mesa Facility or the supplier. ATK Mesa Facility
reserves the right to conduct surveillance at the supplier's facility to
determine that the supplier's quality system meets the requirements of the
quality standard as set forth herein. ATK Mesa Facility approval of the
supplier's system does not constitute acceptance of goods or services or
relief of purchase order or subcontract requirements.
All suppliers on the ATK Mesa Facility Approved supplier list (ASL) as of
7/1/10, will be considered “grandfathered” in and may be compliant to the
standards as approved by ATK Mesa Facility via new supplier audit. In the
event a supplier is removed from the ASL after 7/1/10, the supplier will be
required to be certified to one of the standards listed above –before being
allowed back on the ATK Mesa Facility ASL.
When AS9100 certified, the supplier shall grant access to ATK Mesa Facility
MA Supplier Quality Representative to their file in the OASIS database
(http://www.sae.org/?PORTAL_CODE=IAQG) for their certification
information.
The Supplier shall assure that the current configuration of all drawings,
specifications, and instructions required by the purchase order/ contract, as
well as authorized changes, are used for manufacturing, inspecting, and
testing. Supplier’s configuration management system will control all
elements of the supplier’s and sub-tier suppliers’ design, design changes,
manufacturing and process procedures, manufacturing and process
procedure changes, test procedures, and test procedure changes of the
items on this purchase order/contract.

SUPPLIER MATERIAL QUALITY REQUIREMENT CODES
Revision: 7.0
18QC02
NON-CONFORMING MATERIAL
Suppliers do not have MRB authority on behalf of ATK Mesa Facility.
The supplier shall not deliver any material that departs from drawing,
specification or maintenance requirements. Non-conforming material is to
be submitted for review and disposition on Supplier Request for Material
Review Board (SRMRB). The SRMRB request form (N-F-S-8-4401-2) is
available in the Supplier Portal. Completed forms must be routed to the
applicable Supply Chain Buyer for review and disposition. If dispositioned
acceptable, the non-conforming part(s) must be clearly identified and
segregated from conforming product. A copy of the dispositioned
SRMRB shall accompany the part(s). Product that does not meet ATK Mesa
Facility requirements may be provided to ATK Mesa Facility only after this
approval has been given.
Root Cause and Corrective Action along with all objective evidence must be
submitted with any SRMRB. Failure to submit will result in rejection of
SRMRB request. SRMRB submittals, that are supplier caused, are subject
to a $600 processing fee – per submittal.
The supplier shall document and maintain a system for handling, controlling,
and disposition nonconforming material. This system shall ensure that all
nonconforming material is positively identified to prevent use, shipment and
intermingling with conforming material. The supplier is required to ensure
containment of identified non-conformance’s within the supplier's system
which prevents shipments of similar defects.
If non-conformances are found after delivery, the supplier is required to
support an investigation into them. This may include deploying resources to
ATK Mesa Facility to sort, rework or provide support for investigation of
issues.
Non-conformances discovered at ATK (receiving inspection, in process
build, final inspection, testing, or not previously approved on an SRMRB
request), that are supplier caused, are subject to a $600 processing fee –
per rejection. Suppliers are responsible for all parts, processes, and
services rendered by sub-tier suppliers. Any quality concerns or rejections
as a result of the sub-tier supplier are the responsibility of the supplier.
The supplier shall notify ATK Mesa Buyer of any systemic quality concerns
(i.e. “Major” findings) discovered by the supplier, any third party audit body –
(i.e. NADCAP, ISO/AS registrars), or other customers that may affect the
quality or performance of product already delivered to ATK Mesa Facility.

N-W-7-4401
SUPPLIER MATERIAL QUALITY REQUIREMENT CODES
Revision: 7.0
The supplier shall provide prompt, written notification to ATK Mesa Buyer if
nonconforming product or process escapes are identified after shipment to
ATK Mesa Facility.
Any travel and travel related expenses incurred by ATK personnel related to
a supplier caused escape, may result in a chargeback to the supplier for the
travel costs.
Supplier performance is reviewed by ATK SCM on a monthly interval.
Suppliers whose performance is Bronze or less, may be subject to third
party over inspection being imposed. Third party is defined as an
independent contracted inspection service acting on the behalf of ATK,
performing final inspection(s) at the supplier location to ensure ATK
requirements are met. The cost of this third party over inspection would be
at the supplier’s expense.
ATK Mesa Facility may chargeback a supplier for rework, repair and/or
analysis related to nonconforming product where it has been determined
that the non-conformance is supplier caused and the suppliers schedule to
complete the rework/repair does not support ATK’s scheduled need for the
product.
18QC03
CERTIFICATE OF CONFORMANCE
The Supplier shall provide a Certificate of Conformance with each
shipment. Failure to submit the certification will result in rejection of the lot.
