      Two definitions Google found for me.

      Software quality assurance (or SQA for short) is the ongoing process that ensures the software product meets and complies with the organization’s established and standardized quality specifications.

      Software quality assurance (SQA) is a means and practice of monitoring all software engineering processes, methods, and work products to ensure compliance against defined standards.[1] It may include ensuring conformance to standards or models, such as ISO/IEC 9126 (now superseded by ISO 25010), SPICE or CMMI.[2]
      It includes standards and procedures that managers, administrators or developers may use to review and audit software products and activities to verify that the software meets quality criteria which link to standards.
      SQA encompasses the entire software development process, including requirements engineering, software design, coding, code reviews, source code control, software configuration management, testing, release management and software integration. It is organized into goals, commitments, abilities, activities, measurements, verification and validation. (from Wikipedia).

      Doesn’t seem something that you can offshore while doing the development yourself. It has to be fully integrated in the whole software development cycle.

      Sometimes folk confuse objectives with actual achievements.

      There’s a lot of SQA in Windows and games but they still ship before the bugs and features are complete.

      Do you know why?
