As a service organization, it puts particular importance on providing perfect organization and comprehensive support, not only for the client commissioning the evaluation, but also for the experts and the institution or programme under evaluation.

The Board will assist higher education institutions with customized service offerings, (including audits, workshops and further education of quality management representatives) based on the process of consultation. These especially aim at strengthening the self-controlling ability of the higher education institutions.

The Board considers the development, implementation and management of quality assurance as an integrated, holistic approach to organizational development.
