In what circumstances would a Quality Assurance Specialist be involved with market research?
Niether the FAR nor the DFARS specify the inclusion of a QAS in Market Research. However, this would not preclude an agency from having supplemental requiresments. As Market Research is normally started with the Program office and their technical team, you should check with them to see if they have levied this an an additional requirement. As usual, remember to check with you local KO, PM, and policy office to determine local procedures.
