In October 2018, the Commission for University Education (CUE) embarked on the process of automating its systems to promote CUE’s capacity to undertake its mandate and improve efficiency by providing a flexible, secure, scalable and high-performance integrated information management system. The new system is envisioned to eliminate duplication of effort and allow sharing of information and improvement of service delivery across the subsector.
The process spearheaded by Dynasoft Business Solutions Limited, a consultancy firm leading information system solutions that seeks to automate and align ICT with the customer’s business strategy is set for completion in the next three months.

The Commission has already automated some of key of its processes and modules. They include:

  1. Universities data collection module - this module provides a framework for CUE to collect and aggregate data from all universities in Kenya, that is pertinent to CUE’s role as a regulator of university education. The system has been rolled out to universities who are CUE’s key stakeholders.

It includes but not be limited to management of users, user roles and responsibilities, rights and permissions, archival, automated backups (local and remote), restore and rollbacks.

Other modules that are in the process of automation include: Transport management module, Legal processes management module, Total quality management module and Customer relationship management module.

The Transport management module will enable CUE to keep record of all its vehicles including static details, movement, insurance, fuel management, maintenance, accident, drivers, and bookings while the Legal processes management module will allow CUE to keep record of cases and related legal matters.

The Total quality management module will allow CUE to manage ISO processes, annual work planning and monitoring of Government Performance Contract targets while the Customer relationship management module will enable CUE to support stakeholders by collecting and resolving queries, support requests and complaints.

Mr. Joseph Musyoki, the Chairman of the Project Implementation Committee, said the project implementation period will be lapsing in July 2022 during which time all modules are expected to have gone live.
