TFC uses industry's best practices to bring quality human development experiences to the federal government's total workforce, including its employees, consultants, and subcontractors. We rely on a systematic approach to training development and standard practices for effective knowledge transfer to adult learners.

TFC performs financial transaction processing, including verifying invoices for payment, performing account analyses and reconciliations, performing management analysis (and process improvement), and administrative tasks such as reports and correspondence with vendors, customers, and federal agencies.
QUALITY ASSURANCE PROGRAM
TFC has qualified program/project management and Quality Assurance resources that monitor the progress and quality of a program/project including financial, technical, and quality aspects of our performance and deliverables. TFC uses a Project Management Institute (PMI)-based approach in the development and implementation of standard procedures to operate all of our services contracts. Our approach builds quality controls into every Statement of Work (SOW) activity to ensure the results of our management practices deliver value in our solutions and final deliverables. Key elements of our Quality Control Strategy include the following areas:
• Quality Planning/Quality Baseline
• Quality Assurance
• Quality Control
• Continuous Improvement
• Quality Reporting
TFC's innovative management approach to quality assurance and quality control is an integral part of our mission to harness the collective attributes, skills, and experience of our management team, subject matter experts (SMEs), individual contributors, and subcontractors working in support of the SeaPort-e contract. TFC's Quality Management Program is predicated upon the use of outcome and output measures as well as process metrics. Outcome Measures compare a program result or activity to its intended purpose. We define outcome as a statement of the Navy's expectation of the mission-related results TFC will provide in a particular area.
The foundation of TFC's Quality Management Program is based on prevention rather than correction. Every step possible is taken to avert errors, omissions, discrepancies, and deficiencies. TFC's goal is to achieve the highest quality standards at the most efficient and economic level consistent with the project's goals and objectives.
Our Quality Assurance processes can be tailored for specific task orders or conformed to a customer's Quality Assurance Surveillance Plan (QASP).
