Planning is a basic tool for the proper development of any establishment. The Sultan Qaboos University acknowledges this and has adopted the policy of using strategic planning in all its development activities, whether they occur at the level of units or at the level of the University at large.
The University has established a department of Planning and Statistics (PSD) with specific functions relating to planning in the University. These detailed functions are available on this website. In general, the PSD is required to provide advise based on scientific principles of planning to decision makers, by reviewing all development proposals and making appropriate recommendations. In order to provide such advise, the PSD is now in the process of establishing a data warehouse for the University so that all planning will be based on real data which can help to prepare development proposals and monitor progress of all development projects and other activities in the University and provide progress reports for decision makers.
Visitors to this website can access information about the structure of the PSD and its responsibilities. Information about the publications of the PSD is also available here.
We would also appreciate receiving comments and suggestions that you might have.
