Botho University joins family of BOS ISO 9001:2008 QMS certified Organisations
Botho University has made a historic move as it became the first ever private institution in Botswana to be awarded the BOS ISO 9001:2008 certification. This historic event took place on the 17th June 2013 at Botho University’s campus in Gaborone.
Speaking at the ceremony, the Vice Chancellor for Botho University, Mrs Sheela Raja Ram said obtaining the certificate was not an easy task and expressed her gratitude to her management team and the entire university staff. She highlighted the strenuous journey taken and was delighted that their hard work had paid up in the end.
Honoring this event was the acting Managing Director from Botswana Bureau of standards, Mr Keeper Morgan. In giving a word at the ceremony Mr Morgan said that “Botho University has now joined over one million organizations that have demonstrated a full commitment to provide a service that consistently conforms to requirements specified in ISO 9001:2008 Quality Management System. He further said that the decision to implement a quality management system will assist an Organization in realizing noble strategic and long term plans. He also warned that certification is not static; therefore depending on a continued compliance to the requirement an organization may either retain their certification status or lose the certification.
The benefits of implementing and maintaining ISO 9001:2008 Quality Management System includes
·         improved customer service to stakeholder,
·         Productivity as work is done according to laid down procedures among others.
Mrs Sheela Ram Jam closed the ceremony by emphasizing that ”Having an ISO 9001:2008 certification, Botho University will not rest on its laurels but continue to build confidence and culture of quality in its students and staff  which will in turn result in better graduate quality in the world of work”
Botho University may now proudly fly the certification flag high in the sky in all of their campuses in Maun, Francistown and Gaborone. They may also use the BOBS certification logo for advertising, promotional and publicity purposes.
