The survey will be governed by a steering group. This group will implement and maintain robust governance procedures to steer NewDLHE’s development and monitor its effectiveness.
The steering group will be made up of representatives from HESA, the funding councils, HE providers, and other sector bodies. It exists to:
Ensure the right questions are being asked
Keep the methodology under review
Ensures graduates are not being over-surveyed
Help ensure standards are being met
Manage the process of developing and authorising optional question banks.
HESA will manage the relationship with the survey contractor, and the steering group will ensure the contractor adheres to the key performance indicators set out in the contract. HESA will retain responsibility for setting the quality assurance rules to which the data must adhere.
The steering group will also have a role in the procurement process for NewDLHE.
