Working Page for ITABoK  – All Materials are DRAFT.

Outlines standard accreditation activities in other professional programs.

  1. Iasa Global will develop an accreditation guidelines and application documents which describes the assessment of a masters program against the ITABoK 2.0 and will update regularly as the ITABoK matures. This will include
    1. Accreditation procedures (listed briefly here) for universities
    2. Current fees – I have listed this as $3000 currently based solely on the amount of staff hours (no margins or profit)
    3. Accreditation requirements
      1. Learning objectives in 5 pillars
      2. Assessment methods for skills acquisition (these should not be dependent on access to Iasa IP)
  • Utilization of Iasa Materials – share and share alike material provided by Iasa and universities to each other including public ITABoK
  1. Specialization objectives
  2. Activities and examples of work to be provided by students
  3. Length of program and program fees – related to the possibility of access to the ITAC Grant Programs that have been developed in Seattle and Raleigh
  • Certification and certification equivalents – the degree should be equal to a CITA level
  • Others?
  1. The university will work with their local chapter (Ireland in this case) or will develop a professional ‘technical advisory committee’ if a chapter is not present, to fill out the accreditation application
    1. If no local chapter is present or other Iasa representative a site visit by the accreditation committee representatives (this would not apply here)
  2. Iasa Global will develop and maintain an accreditation committee populated with CITA-S and CITA-P plus representatives from corporate and individual membership as well as participating schools
    1. As soon as Ireland is accredited I believe they should be foremost on the accreditation committee for other schools serving a 1 to 2 year term to provide feedback and interaction with other schools wishing to achieve accreditation.
  3. Once the accreditation application is in order (likely with 1-2 feedback loops) the committee will hold a general review and the university will present briefly on their program
    1. The committee will convene and vote for the accreditation which at this point should pass
  4. Iasa Global will develop an report to be filed and reviewed every two years or annually on the outcomes and progress of the program to maintain accreditation (not sure if fees should apply here though I suggest for Ireland that fees be waived until we know more)
  5. Iasa Global will provide accreditation documentation and seals to the university as well as logos and branding elements. In addition Iasa Global will market the university program to it’s membership in ways that help the program succeed.
