Moreover, an audit performance (compliance) is the audit on the implementation of the defined/guaranteed quality assurance system, in this case, are the fulfilment of the quality standard and the customer satisfaction. The implementation procedure of AIM UB is performed in two ways, they are, desk evaluation and auditee visitation. Technically, AIM mechanism refers to SOP AIM (Audit Internal Mutu (AIM) – Pusat Jaminan Mutu ub.ac.id)). In the practice, AIM in UB involves certified internal quality auditors. The following is the mechanism of AIM in UB.
AIM UB has carried out many activities since 2011 which are grouped into two categories, namely, Internal Quality Audit for Unit of Academic Executive or AIM UKPA Audit Internal Mutu Unit Kerja Pelaksana Akademik (henceforth AIM UKPA) and Internal Quality Audit for Academic Supporting Services or Audit Internal Mutu Unit Kerja Penunjang Pelaksana Akademik (henceforth AIM UKPPA). AIM UKPA is a specialized unit working for faculty/programme, department/study programme, the department/study programme, and laboratory. On the other hand, AIM UKPPA consists of a team working for the bureau, institution, central laboratory, technical executive unit, and business agencies.
As a response for the results given by AIM, the study programme received input on the implementation of the quality assurance of the Tri Dharma for lecturers, students, and graduates from the study programme. The input is formulated in the form of a manpower plan that covers the timeline of lecturers’ quality improvement plan through further studies for lecturers that haven’t taken doctorate programme, and its relevancy with the betterment of the study programme.
