In improving the quality of institution management, The Center of Research and Community Service of Sekolah Tinggi Pertanahan Nasional (PPPM-STPN) Yogyakarta conducted a benchmarking on Tuesday (20/10) to IRCS Universitas Brawijaya.  Sekolah Tinggi Pertanahan Nasional is an official higher education and the only school for studying a land major in Indonesia.

Head of IRCS UB, Prof Luchman Hakim, stated his hope to discuss more about the issue of land conservation and to accelerate other new topics. Further, IRCS UB explained the research and community service schemes to accelerate scientific publication and journal management.

The quality manager of PPPM-STPN, Abdul Haris, explained that the urgency for having this comparative study is to learn the quality improvement through ISO 9008 documents. He also asked about all the breakthroughs of IRCS activities and journal management. Secretary of IRCS UB, Dodi Wirawan Irawanto, PhD., replied that the ISO management of IRCS UB is integrated with the Quality Insurance Institution as the core. We prepared the documents for quality internal audit on the IRCS website.

Moreover, the Head of IRCS UB, explained that we must change all the unit staff mindset before implementing ISO 9008. Then the team could see the guidance from the ISO website as a reference. “We can prepare the documents by referring to the culture of every institution,” he said.  [retna/lia]
