This web-based guidance document presents quality considerations for munitions response (MR) projects. The document explains the decision logic used for an MR project and offers resources for planning and monitoring quality assurance/quality control activities to ensure quality data for confidence in decisions. An overview of the MR process is presented, as well as particular quality considerations at critical decision points for MR projects. Planning for each decision point requires specific quality metrics be assigned and ongoing monitoring confirms project objectives are met.

This web-based guidance document explains the process of geophysical classification, describes its benefits and limitations, and most importantly discusses the information and data needed by regulators to monitor and evaluate the use of the technology. This document also emphasizes using a systematic planning process to develop data acquisition and decision strategies at the outset of a munitions response effort, as well as quality considerations throughout the project. Stakeholder issues that are unique to munitions response are also discussed

Three fact sheets provide basic information about geophysical classification for munitions response.
Provides information about the wide-area assessment (WAA) process and the tools currently available to conduct WAA within a munitions response area.
Provides guidance to environmental regulators on how to define quality, systematically plan for and achieve quality results, and apply these concepts to processes common to munitions response projects.
This valuable resource for project managers and personnel working on munitions response sites provides an overview of the current status of technologies used for munitions response actions and, where possible, evaluates and quantifies their performance capabilities.
Provides information on GPOs and the broader topics of geophysical surveys, equipment, and methodologies currently used in munitions response actions.
A guide for regulators, stakeholders, and others involved in oversight of historical records review projects on munitions response sites.
An analysis of case studies that supports early and meaningful state regulatory involvement in the selection of innovative unexploded ordnance characterization technologies.
