The U.S. Department of Education's Quality Assurance (QA) Program, discontinued in 2016, helped schools attain, sustain, and advance student aid delivery. It served participating Title IV institutions by providing tools that promoted compliance, better service for students, and continuous improvement in program delivery.

Early in each academic year, financial aid administrators at over 200 colleges and universities used "QA methodology and software" to check the accuracy of the aid awarded to students receiving federal student aid. The American Institutes for Research (U.S. Department of Education) awarded Cleverex a federal grant to build systems for use in conjunction with the bQA methodology and software.b

Quality Assurance (QA) ToolKit
Developed using Delphi, the QA ToolKit automated almost all QA worksheets, which prescribed how the methodology should be applied.

Quality Assurance (QA) Data Doctor
Using the QA Software and data collected from a sample of students, financial aid administrators used Cleverex's Data Doctor to re-verify the aid that was originally awarded and disbursed. Data Doctor automatically flagged discrepancies, thus allowing administrators to efficiently verify their data.

Quality Assurance (QA) Calculator
After verification by the Data Doctor, administrators submitted their schools' data to support contractors for program-wide analysis. The QA Calculator aggregated all the information for about 50,000 individual student aid recipients and calculated detailed statistical information about program performance. Originally, these computations were generated using SAS programs, which were difficult to modify whenever financial aid rules or Quality Assurance methodology changed. Consequently, Cleverex developed the QA Calculator using Delphi.
