Introduction of a Data System at the Universite Paul Sabatier, Toulouse (France). Programme on Institutional Management in Higher Education.
Prineau, J. P.
The data system and its branches, computerized in 1970, provide information from the following: student records file, accountancy file, an experimental-stage personnel file, and a planning-stage facilities file. The files not only cope with the university's daily management duties but also supply the French Ministry with statistics. Two types of data are collected in the student records file: personal and sociological data and academic data. It is used primarily for day-to-day academic management. The accountancy file is primarily a management tool, administering 35 budgets representing teaching and research units and joint university and inter-university departments by recording the revenue and expenditure of over 700 teaching, research and miscellaneous departments. Problems associated with the data system in general are noted along with its overall effectiveness in meeting the original objective of helping to analyze the teaching system, evaluate costs, and ensure proper decision making.
