Quality Assurance Program Branch


The Quality Assurance Program (QAP) provides quality assurance oversight for federal credibility assessment (CA) programs participating in the NCCA oversight process. Participating federal programs adhere to standardized practices set forth in the Federal Psychophysiological Detection of Deception Examiner Handbook (Handbook) and the PCASS Handbook. Through QAP operational assistance and SME advice, polygraph technical support is routinely provided for CA programs with counterintelligence (CI), security and law enforcement (LE) missions. Advanced polygraph training designed to reinforce the use of standardized polygraph practices based upon the standards detailed in the Handbook, agency policy, QAP oversight findings and NCCA curriculum is provided for the federal polygraph community.
