GoShift QMS passes accreditation re-assessment test


Western Bay of Plenty District Council (WBOPDC) put GoShift's shared QMS to the test at its IANZ re-assessment last month and successfully maintained its accreditation.

WBOPDC is using the GoShift shared QMS for all the Regs except 7. Reg 7 is due to be completed by July 2018.

Kerrie Little, Building Consent Authority Quality and Systems Specialist, says the experience was much better than their last assessment.

She says IANZ spent most of the time looking around the system itself and had very few questions.

The staff at Western Bay of Plenty District Council have had no problems adopting the QMS. The structure of the shared QMS and ease of use of Promapp have made it easy to implement says Kerrie.

Kate Fox, GoShift's QMS Business Analyst, says this is a major milestone.

"It proves the concept of the shared QMS and proves the content meets required standards."

Kate says not only will it make IANZ assessments simpler, but it will also be easier to keep the shared content up to date as there is just one source of the truth. It will also open opportunities for resource sharing.

The GoShift QMS has been drafted by Wellington City Council's Lloyd Pallesen and been reviewed by the GoShift QMS Technical Leadership Group. Promapp has provided the process management software.
