BANGALORE: The National Assessment and Accreditation Council (NAAC) will be launching a revised manual/methodology to further strengthen the accreditation process with effect from April 2012.
It has been decided that Letter of Intent (LOI) and Institutional Eligibility for Quality Assessment (IEQA) received till January 1,2012 5.45 pm will be accepted for further processing. Institutions will await further intimation regarding submission of LOI/IEQA by April 2012.
Institutions which have submitted their LOI and/or cleared IEQA (already received intimation from NAAC) are required to submit Self-study Report (SSR)/Re-accreditation Report (RAR) by February 15, 2012. Institutions which have been intimated by NAAC to provide additional inputs for already submitted SSR/RAR may do so on or before February 15, 2012.
The LOI/IEQA (cleared by NAAC till date) will be valid for institutions which opt for submission of SSR/RAR in the revised format after April 2012. The option may be intimated to NAAC.
NAAC advises institutions to submit the SSR/RAR in the revised format and not to rush to submit the SSR just to meet the deadline of February 15, 2012 as one of the important purposes of assessment is to enrich the learning experience of institutions during preparation of SSR/RAR.
