Registration for the next round of the benchmarking survey closing soon!

EUNIS BencHEIT Task Force runs the annual survey on IT costs and volumes of Higher Education institutes. Its participation is voluntary and free of charge. The survey has been invented and is being developed and managed by CIOs within EUNIS community.

The BM-survey provides an overview of the institutions’ IT cost structure in three dimensions:

  • by organizational group: centralized IT, other centralized units (e.g. library, finance), faculties and research centers,
  • by services: e.g. networking, teaching, audio-visual,
  • by accounts

The BM2018 round of the BencHEIT survey has already been launched. Please, find material from the entry session here.

We are closing registration for this round of BencHEIT soon, so please register as soon as possible, at the latest by the end of March.
