Selecting and implementing an improved data management system will ensure that the technical side of accreditation and the Enrolment and Degrees Awarded Survey run optimally. Stakeholders for each of these will benefit from reduced administrative workload and a system that can more effectively accommodate changes to accreditation criteria and the Enrolment and Degrees Awarded Survey. This system will benefit multiple stakeholder groups:
- Higher education institutions (HEIs) and volunteers will enjoy an easier means to input data and perform other tasks
- Engineers Canada will have a more robust, flexible, scalable, and sustainable capability to conduct the accreditation of engineering programs at HEIs
- All stakeholders will benefit from reduced operational risk associated with existing systems, databases, and spreadsheets, as well as a reduction in duplicate data entry.
