19 Management Action Plan: Overview
The Management Action Plan (MAP) is a tool used to document and track resolutions for standards marked non-compliant during an audit. Workflow: The GM will receive a Published from LRA Worldwide when the reports are available on the QPR website. The MAP is generated when the report is Published. If the GM neglects to submit the MAP within the designated time frame, a Tickler is sent to the GM as a reminder. When the MAP is submitted to the MAP Approver, a Submitted is sent to the MAP Approver; the GM is not authorized to make any further changes while the MAP Approver is reviewing the MAP . If the MAP Approver Denies the MAP , a Denied is sent to the GM and the status of the MAP is set back to Pending. The GM must then make the revisions/improvements suggested before re-submitting the MAP to the MAP Approver If the MAP Approver Approves the MAP , an Approved is sent to the GM. In Approved status the MAP Approver can use the Re-open feature to reset the MAP status as Pending. In Approved status the GM can mark the MAP Completed, a Completed is sent to all stakeholders and the MAP is locked as Read Only.
