In the year 2007, UNIBASQ signed an agreement of collaboration with ANECA in order to participate in the Program of Recognition of Internal Quality Assurance Systems of University Education: AUDIT.
The process of constructing the European Higher Education Area (EHEA) and the new changes introduced in the Spanish regulations are promoting the introduction of procedures for assuring quality in the work of the universities, with the aim of promoting continuous improvement. For this purpose it is recommendable that universities should have Quality Assurance Systems (Sistemas de Garantía Interna de Calidad – SGIC) and policies that are formally established and publicly available.
In accordance with the above, ANECA in collaboration with the AQU and ACSUG agencies have, in a coordinated manner, developed the AUDIT Program. The purpose of this initiative directed at the University Centres is to guide the design of internal quality assurance systems, which should integrate the activities that have been developed to date related to the guarantee of quality of teaching. Although these guidelines are directed to the Centres, there are transversal elements directed to the University as a whole (for example, with respect to academic staff, material resources and services, etc.). As support for the universities in the development of these policies of quality, the university evaluation agencies have developed a series of documents directed towards this aim.
