Resident Management System (RMS),
Quality Control Software (QCS), and
Standard Exchange Data Format (SDEF)

The Quality Control System (QCS) is the Contractor’s quality management and contract administration module of the Government’s Resident Management System (RMS) and was developed to assist contractors in providing contract-required data to the Corps of Engineers.  Primavera software currently is the preferred CPM software.  The SDEF Conversion utility facilitates the exchange of information between the scheduling software and the contractors QCS software.  That information is then uploaded to the government’s RMS system.  SIS can create the SDEF file that is uploaded into QCS.
