data quality and management

Reliable analytical data are critical for any successful project. Laboratory results can influence how your project team thinks about problems, solutions, costs, and schedules.  Barr’s data-management and data-quality team is knowledgeable in all areas of laboratory operations and sample analyses. They’ll work with you to obtain data to meet project-specific data-quality objectives.

Our data-management specialists use EQuIS, the industry-leading integrated environmental-data-management software system, to provide efficient automated data transfers and verification, flexible comprehensive reporting, and secure long-term storage.  Barr’s data-quality coordinators work closely with and perform audits of environmental laboratories.

In addition, we can provide the data-quality planning needed for complex projects. We have written more than 50 quality assurance project plans (QAPPs) for EPA-lead and state-lead projects and more than 50 sampling and analysis plans.
