As a way of improvement of services’ quality within FNU, QSO markets and organizes Annual Internal Quality Circle Competition that brings together the teams from support sections, colleges and departments of FNU to showcase the innovative ways to improve the quality of services and programmes at FNU. QSO also creates awareness about 5s workplace organization method.

In 2011 FNU introduced the Customer Complaints Corrective/Preventive Actions and Suggestions – CC/CPA Online System with the main objective to ensure continuous improvement in standards and constructive handling of complaints. CC/CPAS system enables the university community members as well as the general public to become actively involved in improving the services provided at the University. The DQS manages and processes online complaints, performs internal and external audit, evaluates and monitors the corrective and preventive actions. To increase the awareness about the system, the DQS conducts university-wide workshops and training sessions on CC/CPA.
