Pangasinan State University’s quest to establish efficiency in all of its operations in both the academic and support services is falling into place as it moves closer to being the first SUC to be ISO 9001:2015 certified this year.
On October 3, the University’s Quality Management System (QMS) was launched with a scope that covers the provision of Tertiary services in Lingayen campus which includes the University level management processes, performance evaluation and improvement processes, and campus support services.
The launch highlighted the University’s commitment to quality education as it starts to develop a University-wide ISO 9001:2015 quality management system. Moreover, the University stated as well its pledge to effectively guide its clients and stakeholders towards the successful completion of its journey. A QMS is a collection of processes focused on achieving quality policy and quality objectives to meet customer requirements. It is expressed as the organizational structure, policies, procedures, processes and resources needed to implement quality management.
PSU’s commitment to institutionalize the establishment of Quality Management System in both the academic and support services is one big move in achieving PSU’s vision to be the ASEAN Premier State University in 2020.
Anchored on the university’s collective desire in providing excellent quality education and in adherence to Administrative Order No. 161 entitled “Institutionalizing Quality Management System in Government” as amended by Executive Order No. 605 “encouraging Local Government Units (LGUs), State Universities and Colleges (SUCs), the Judiciary, the Legislature and the Constitutional offices to establish ISO-Quality Management Systems and pursue certification”, PSU started its initiative with series of trainings, assessments and consultations with the end goal of being ISO 9001:2015 certified SUC in Pangasinan this year.
