This quote is also from my addendum (supplement) to my first report.
Our management will probably try to tell you that this audit (Area Surveillance Audit) is the system audit in the previous QOI. That would be a sign of desperation, but we can read, so their arguments will fall flat.
5/8/02 note: Today, in our crew meeting, we were notified of our 5/1/02 QA Manual change. After the meeting, I did the required reading of the changes to the manual. I found that the above two QOIs have been canceled. However, I’ll leave this item as is, for I expect you can still write us up for noncompliance with our previous QOIs as I have reported. Even though our management has supposedly new procedures that "fully" take the place of the above two QOIs (procedure I.D.s) that they can now start not complying to as they did our past QOIs, you’ll note that Directive 030 is still in place, which requires a System Audit.
