Audit Process

The objective of the Quality Assurance Audit of a university is to determine whether an institution, since its last review, has acted in compliance with the provisions of its Institutional Quality Assurance Process (IQAP), as ratified by the Quality Council.

All publicly assisted universities in Ontario associated with the Quality Council have committed to participating in this audit process once every eight years. Additional audits for specific institutions may take place within any cycle, as described in the Quality Assurance Framework.

The summary of the overall findings of each audit, including recommendations and suggestions, will be posted in Audit Schedules and Reports¬†once they are completed. In Year One of the cycle (for the academic year of 2012-2013), Brock University and the University of Ottawa were audited. One year after each institution has received the full report on its audit, the auditors will assess the extent to which the universities have responded to the reports’ recommendations and suggestions.
