Triad Requirements

There are a number of requirements (e.g., appropriate QA/QC, stakeholder participation, flexible contracting mechanisms) that are important for a successful Triad implementation.

The purpose of this section is to introduce the various requirements necessary for successful deployment of the Triad. Many of these will be described in greater detail in subsequent sections. These are all items a project manager should be looking for when implementing a Triad approach. However, these requirements are not absolute in all cases for a site to experience at least some of the benefits of a Triad approach. For example, collaborative data sets may produce better quality decisions at reduced costs even if real-time measurements systems and dynamic work strategies are not included. Likewise, systematic planning is a necessary and essential component for all hazardous waste site cleanup activities, whether collaborative data sets, real-time measurement systems, and dynamic work strategies are used or not.

Systematic planning lays a technically defensible foundation for proposed project activities.
Dynamic work strategies incorporate the ability to adapt to site conditions as better information becomes available while work is underway.
Real-time measurement technologies provide information quickly enough to support dynamic work strategies.
Appropriate quality assurance/quality control strategies are an intrinsic part of the Triad approach.
Multi-disciplinary technical teams are essential to systematic planning and the successful implementation of Triad-based field activities.
Flexible contracting mechanisms facilitate the implementation of dynamic work strategies while at the same time producing cost-effective and defensible contracts.
The need to provide in-field decision support is a unique characteristic of Triad-based work strategies.
Stakeholder participation plays a particularly important role in a Triad approach.
