“ISO Certification is just a consequence. The ultimate goal is to give quality services to our customers— the students,” said Prof. Emelyn Richardson Mordeno, Acting Director of the Quality Assurance Management Services Office (QuAMSO) of the Office of the Vice Chancellor for Planning and Development (OVCPD).
Prof. Mordeno, the resource speaker and facilitator of the series of ISO workshops held in the Institute shared her knowledge and expertise in Organizational Development (OD) as a former Internal Auditor and HR Specialist of Aboitiz Transport System, an ISO certified company. She intends to help boost the Institute’s present status to a higher level of systematic, organized, and quality services for its constituents.
The awareness seminar on International Organization for Standardization 9001:2015 Certification was launched on April 11, 2016 at the Institute Gymnasium hosted by the QuAMSO of the Office of the Vice Chancellor for Planning and Development (OVCPD).
OVCPD conducts series of ISO Workshops for the different units of the Institute which started on August 16, 2016 and will continue until September 13, 2016. Staff and faculty are excused from work and classes are suspended accordingly.
Vice Chancellor for OVCPD Dr. Feliciano B. Alagao said that “We should continue to educate and involve everyone in the process as we motivate ourselves to do our mandates with quality outputs. MSU-IIT as a Higher Education Institution (HEI) shall follow the statutory and regulatory requirements mandated to us,” he added.
The activity basically reviews all the important elements of the Institute as an organization as prescribed under the requirements of ISO 9001:2015. It looks into the needs and expectations of both internal and external customers of the organization, assesses organizational threats and opportunities, re-assesses roles and functions, identifies competencies, and reviews the organization’s processes and lines of communication.
