Audits in Austria
evalag conducts quality management audits at higher education institutions in Austria according to the standards of the "Act on Quality Assurance in Higher Education". In 2014, evalag was officially authorised to do so by the Austrian Federal Ministry of Science, Research and Economy.
The audit is a certifying procedure (→PDF). It is conducted as a peer review by a panel composed of five international experts always featuring one student member and one person responsible for the QM at another higher education institution, Besides a documented self-evaluation of the higher education institution, the audit includes a site visit by the expert panel. The final decision on the auditing results and on any constraints is made by the Accreditation Commission of evalag. To date, several quality management audits could be completed successfully.
