One of the foundations of QA is each company's ability to define terms
on two levels:
1) As the company uses them within its own system
2) As used by divergent regulatory and quality standards

I'm sure that John's answer ("A protocol is a plan without a targeted
application. The QA plan is applied to a specific application.") is
correct within the quality system that he uses or has used. There are
other, equally valid quality systems that define those terms

So to return to Susan's question: The difference between a QA plan and a
protocol is defined within her company's own quality system. The rest of
us can guess till the cows come home, but only someone within Susan's
company could know the correct answer for sure.
