Institutional Monitoring and Evaluation of University of Brawijaya IRCS (Independent Cluster)

In improving the implementation quality of research in higher education, Directorate of Research and Community Services under Directorate General of Research Empowerment and Development conducted institutional monitoring and evaluation for research in higher education as the member of Independent cluster. For University of Brawijaya, the institutional monitoring and evaluation were conducted on Wednesday, September 19th, 2018 with University of Brawijaya Institute for Research and Community Services as the PIC.

The delegated reviewer from Ministry of Research, Technology and Higher Education was Dr. Drajat Tri Kartono assisted by Ansyori. In the monitoring there were 7 important points to be evaluated to assess the institutional achievement. They were 1) standard operation procedure for quality insurance based on research cycle, 2) the number of internal grants for lecturers’ research, 3)funding allocation for management/quality assurance (to perform research cycle), 4) internal reviewers, 5) the suitability of research titles with the university research strategic plan, 6) research outputs, and 7) research result downstream.

By doing our best we had prepared the supporting documents for fulfilling the required performance data. Also the insufficient data asked by the reviewer had been completed in the same day. Hopefully, by performing the best preparation the institutional performance assessment by Kemenristekdikti would increase and could accelerate the research program quality in University of Brawijaya as one of independent cluster higher educations.
