Agreements on Objectives and Monitoring

Within the framework of structured monitoring, the evaluated departments and central institutions regularly exchange information with the Executive Committee on the implementation of their target agreements.

Process Diagram: Agreement on Objectives

Based on the results of the institutional evaluation, the evaluated unit and the Executive Board conclude an agreement on objectives. This agreement is negotiated between and signed by the responsible member of the Executive Board and the evaluated unit. The finalized agreements on objectives are published internally within the university. Once the agreement has been signed, the evaluated unit and the Executive Board start implementing the (agreed) objectives.

The implementation of the agreements is supported by the Unit Quality Management and Administrative Bodies through structured monitoring process. After about 1.5 years, a monitoring meeting on the state of implementation takes place between the responsible member of the Executive Board and the evaluated unit. After about half the runtime of the agreement on objectives (after about three years), the evaluated unit submits an interim report to the Executive Board.

The results of the monitoring are used as a basis for an institutional re-evaluation.
