The Office embarked, between April 2007 and July 2009, on a three-year work plan aiming during the first year at spreading a culture of quality, during the second year at internal quality scrutiny, and during the third year at external quality scrutiny. Then work began on preparing a strategic plan for the quality office that consisted of the Office's vision, mission, values, and goals. This strategic plan has been converted into an action plan covering the period (2011-2016). Besides, the office issued a SWOT analysis report.
