Here are some references that I found, don't know if they are relevant.

"I would hope that Jason recommends a Discovery Audit (that's what we call it in my company) to determine what the real performance problems are before he starts lining up his EPSS team - even if he does it informally"

at ASQ I could not find anything in their search facility.
Hope this helps, I think that it might be connected to ISO 14000.

Nick,
According to "worth consulting", it's a visit where they talk to management and look at your system before deciding what you need in terms of their consulting service and the time and fee for doing it. They charge $600 plus for it. They do ISO 9000 and 14000.
I looked up "discovery audit" on Altavista.
