Unit 4: Procurement and Management Support

Section 4.3: Energy Star Program and Quality Management

In this section we cover compliance audit. An audit is an evaluation of a person, organization, system, process, project, or product. Audits have traditionally assessed financial systems, but they can now be used for environmental performance as well.

Key Concepts and Terms. It is important to understand the terminology used in business/IS strategy and planning. You need to be able to communicate both within the ICT profession and also within the wider business community.

As you work your way through the assigned readings and the additional readings that you and your colleagues identify, record any terms and concepts that you find particularly interesting in the Student-created Glossary. Others can view and edit the terms you enter, and of course, you can view and edit the terms that others enter. Don’t forget to list and cite any information sources you use in either APA or the IEEE style.

Learning Outcomes

When you have completed this section, you should be able to form a reasoned opinion on the conformity of systems to environmental standards, such as the ISO 14000 series of environment management standards, Electronic Product Environmental Assessment Tool (EPEATTM), and Energy Star Program.
