“I met Brad at the 2014 NUPIC meeting. My very next audit just happened to be for a company where Brad conducted their last internal audit. I was impressed with the thoroughness of the audit and the feedback from the company so I hired Brad to lead our 2015 internal audit. He once again proved to be thorough and professional. Brad also made several recommendations to our program that both strengthened it and made it more efficient. I would have no reservations to recommend Brad to someone looking for a lead auditor or to perform a gap analysis.”

“Mr. Boothe has worked with the Nuclear Products Division of Oregon Iron Works for the past few years. At first we utilized Mr. Boothe for internal audits on our 10CFR50 Appendix B Quality Program. Mr. Boothe proved to be very detailed and his reporting was better than we had ever had in the past. This fact was important because the amount of external oversight we experience in the commercial nuclear arena. Because of Mr. Boothe’s performance with our internal audit, we started utilizing him for Vendor Audits. We were comfortable with Mr. Boothe representing our company and again his reporting stands up to external oversight. We have also used Mr. Boothe in support of our Corrective Action Program and as before, his output was exceptional. I plan to partner with Acuity Quality Assurance for many years to come.”

“We had to play catch up on our nuclear product line, working to improve our nuclear product supply chain and auditing to nuclear requirements. We needed to understand our quality gaps and clarify our processes. Brad was able to support this need with speed, professionalism and clear guidance. Since then we have used Brad for several other quality program needs such as auditing key nuclear suppliers and auditing required quality systems within our environment. It is always a pleasure to work with Brad and I would recommend his services and experience anytime.”

“Acuity Quality Assurance gave our combined Appendix B program and our ISO/IEC 17025 laboratory accreditation program a “good scrubbing”, identifying many issues. NUPIC came in to audit our program two months later with 5 auditors for 5 days and found 2 deficiencies, none significant. We were very well prepared by the thorough internal audit performed by Brad. Our laboratory includes a complete Calibration department, as well as a Chemistry, EPA Chemistry, Metallurgy, Materials Test, and Nondestructive Testing Services departments. Our Lab will be utilizing Acuity Quality Assurance and Brad Boothe for future audit needs.”

“Brad was asked to come in and provide an internal audit after an immediate transition between QA Managers. Once he arrived and we began to talk, it became obvious he was the right fit to support our needs. Throughout his time with us we were kept up-to-date on what he was seeing, the findings being identified, observations, and recommendations. Having Brad come in didn’t feel like we had brought in an outside entity; it felt like we had hired a new team member to help improve our program and make us better. If you are looking for an independent review of your processes to verify compliance to requirements and don’t enjoy feeling as if you’re playing constant defense – this company is the way to go. We plan on using this group to support internal reviews again in the future, and would highly recommend anyone reading this to do the same.
