DATEATTACHMENT 208300.10 CHG XX
NOTE: It is not enough for the contracting repair station to give its QCM to the non-certificated contractor and assume the proper procedures will be followed. The certificated repair station must provide adequate surveillance to ensure its quality control procedures are followed.
NOTE: Contracting out maintenance functions should not be used to replace the need for adequately staffed and trained maintenance personnel. PIs should be cautious of repair stations that constantly revise the maintenance function list on an emergency basis in order to complete work in a timely manner. PIs should ensure that repair stations have the necessary trained personnel for the scope and complexity of the ratings they hold.
