The Quality Assurance Project Plan (QAPP) is a formal planning document for environmental data collection activities that describes the data collection procedures and the necessary quality assurance and quality control activities that must be implemented to ensure that the results are sufficient and adequate to satisfy the stated performance criteria.  A QAPP requires that the systematic planning process and the resulting sampling design are documented in a Field Sampling Plan for each environmental data collection project conducted by the Bureau. It is the blueprint for identifying how the quality system of the Bureau is reflected in a particular project and in associated technical goals. It also details the management authorities, personnel, schedule, policies, and procedures for data collection.
