SorSU-ISO Unit Spearheads Training on the Enhancement of Risk Register to SorSU Process Owners, Internal Auditors, & QMS Team Leaders

To improve and revise the risk register using the process-based approach and as one of the steadfast efforts of the University for continual improvement of its system, Sorsogon State University – International Organization for Standardization (SorSU-ISO), led by Prof. Shirley G. Dicen (Head, SorSU-ISO), conducted a two-day virtual activity, entitled: Training on the Enhancement of Risk Register, from November 7-8, 2023, via Zoom Meeting.

The two-day virtual event formally commenced with a welcome message in a video presentation of SUC President III, Dr. Geraldine F. De Jesus, in which she highlighted that all government offices, including the University, must adapt and implement ISO-approved quality management systems.

“The budget increase, infrastructure projects, linkage and partnership indications, employees’ bonuses, and other opportunities will continue as long as we are perceived as an effective institution. One proof of this that we can show is being ISO certified. With this globally recognized seal of excellence, big government agencies and even private corporations shall continue to recognize and respect our credibility as a state university.

And as we gain momentum in our bid for internationalization, maintaining our ISO certification will serve as our university’s passport and ensure that foreign organizations will continue to trust the high quality of our services and graduates. This translates into meaningful employment for our students and also a chance for us to continuously improve our institution’s standing on the world stage.”

The virtual seminar-workshop, which features Dr. Lydia L. Taganguin (Trainer/Consultant) as the esteemed resource speaker, is comprised of topics including Risk and Quality Standards, Managing Risk, Plan Risk Management, Risk Identification, Qualitative Analysis, and Plan Risk Response, as well as a series of virtual workshops where outputs from SorSU process owners are developed, enhanced and improved. Meanwhile, Chief Administrative Officer V, Dr. Leny D. Berdin, emphasized in her closing remarks the importance of these quality management system trainings to the University and commended the process owners for their support and active participation in the activities.
