Three audit officials from Kenya Bureau of Standards (KEBS) commenced ISO 9001:2008 surveillance audit at the main campus in Juja, Tuesday September 3, 2013, the first such exercise since the standards body re-certified the University in October 2012.
Welcoming the team, Vice Chancellor Prof. Mabel Imbuga assured the auditors of the University’s total commitment to the Quality Management System (QMS) that she said had enabled the university to register marked and improved quality service delivery to its stakeholders.
Prof Imbuga told the auditors JKUAT was proud to be KEBS ISO 9001:2008 certified since 2009, and pledged the university’s readiness to embrace and implement any advice arising from the surveillance audit. ‘We are open to any advice and ready to improve on identified shortcomings’
Mr. Samson Butichi, KEBS team leader told the session he was in JKUAT to establish continued conformity and improvement to its QMS as well as to evaluate the ability of the System’s compliance with statutory, regulatory and contractual commitments. The idea of the audit according to Mr. Butichi is to appraise the effectiveness of JKUAT QMS.
