ISO Remote 2nd Surveillance Audit was conducted at the Don Honorio Honorio Ventura State University last November 3 to 5, 2021 to asses the Institution’s compliance to the prestigious ISO Standards.  The aforementioned audit became a platform to exhibit DHVSU’s noble mission of delivering service with paramount quality to clienteles and stakeholders in reference to areas of instruction, research, and extension.

As part of the audit, Dr. Mushtaq interviewed Dr. Gloria B.

Dr. Mushtaq audits the Office of Student Affairs headed by Dr. Gloria Gigante.

Usually, intelligent and challenging questions are expected from external auditors. As the case, Dr. Robin B.

The Director of the Research and Management Office, Dr. Robin B. Dimla, responds to the questions of Dr. Mushtaq.

Dr. Mushtaq likewise interviewed six (6) different staff of the University from the Learning Resource Center and the Administrative Services Office.

Considering that the DHVSU Extension Campuses in Porac and Sto. Tomas underwent their surveillance audit last November 20, 2020, Dr. Mushtaq decided to audit the Lubao Campus for this 2021 Surveillance Audit.

Taken into account their surveillance audit last November 11, 2020, DHVSU’s extension campuses in Porac and Sto. Tomas were no longer audited.  Instead, Dr. Mushtaq assessed the DHVSU Lubao Campus for this said audit.

On November 5, 2021, the said audit was concluded with a program where Dr. Mushtaq gladly announced that the University passed the 2nd Surveillance Audit. This was then followed by the pledge to commitment to sustain and continuously improve the QMS in the University. This was delivered by Engr. Reden M. Hernandez, Vice President for Academic Affairs.

The highlight of this surveillance audit during the Closing Programme on November 5, 2021 was the announcement of Dr. Mushtaq that DHVSU passed.  Everyone in the virtual meeting gave a resounding sighs of reliefs followed by congratulations when Dr. Mushtaq flashed on his screen the word PASSED as the official result of the 2nd surveillance audit.
