Quality Assurance Process Audit

In 2015, the Minister of Advanced Education tasked the Degree Quality Assessment Board (DQAB) with developing and implementing periodic quality assurance process audits of internal program review policies and processes at public post-secondary institutions.

A Quality Assurance Process Audit Framework and Assessment Criteria were developed and approved by the Ministry. Simon Fraser University agreed to be one of the first audits, with the submission of an institutional report in January 2017 and a site visit by three Ministry-appointed assessors in March 2017.
