A two-stage stochastic quadratic programming problem with inequality constraints is considered. By quasi-Monte-Carlo-based approximations of the objective function and its first derivative, a feasible sequential system of linear equations method is proposed. A new technique to update the active constraint set is suggested. We show that the sequence generated by the proposed algorithm converges globally to a Karush-Kuhn-Tucker (KKT) point of the problem. In particular, the convergence rate is locally superlinear under some additional conditions.
