In the design and procurement of a high power laser system such as the Shiva Fusion Laser at LLNL, the optical components are the single most important aspect for optimum laser performance. The cost, schedule and quality of the optics are the driving parameters for the entire program and many factors are involved in controlling, monitoring and evaluating these parameters. These factors include 1) the procurement cycle, 2) knowledge of the vendors, 3) realistic specifications, 4) understanding of the fabrication process, and 5) the quality control and test requirements. Guidelines and examples of the methods used in the procurement and qualification of the optics in Shiva will be presented.
