    I have recently been hired as Quality Assurance Manager. My boss gave me the Q.C. Manual and asked me to update. I have no idea where he got it from. I have reformated to APA and was wondering if I should cite him or ask him where he got the information from, and are the Q.C. Manuals out there in the real world APA?

    Try “plagiarism”…
    And who cares where he got it or how it’s formatted — your job is to validate that the info in it is correct.

    It is correct. Sorry, I miss spelled the word. I was thinking with all of the rampant copying going on it could lead to a lawsuit.

    My advice is to take a calculated risk and don’t worry about it.ย  You’ve already completed one totally useless task in re-formatting it so why waste time with another useless task in preparing footnotes and a bibliography.
    This reminds me of George Costanza on Seinfeld in the episode where he got a new job (or at least he thought he did) and the only thing he did was reorganize the file for a particular client into a new folder.

    Gary,This is a tricky question. I don’t believe the APA requires citations (unless a study, statistics,etc are being utilized)it may not be appropriate to utilize APA format. Have you considered Chicago? E

    No, I haven’t but that is a good idea. The manual looked more like a parts book than a manual. This is the reason I reformated.
