Catholic Education Diocese of Parramatta streamlines audit process for more than 75 schools
Digital transformation of regulatory compliance increases speed, transparency
Every five years, Australian principals and school administrators must complete a full compliance audit to maintain registration. The workload associated with responding to this audit put significant pressure on staff, administrators, and principals.
Not only was it time consuming to manually fill out spreadsheets and email them to the education office, but compliance requirements were also ambiguous and often interpreted differently. Catholic Education Diocese of Parramatta (CEDP) sought a solution to reduce staff stress levels, save time, and improve accuracy.
CEDPs goal was to transform from an occasional site audit approach to automation and tracking of “24×7” compliance. To accomplish this, CEDP needed to simplify compliance-related process in a contemporary way that supported staff engagement and responded to current and future compliance needs. The organization envisioned a new rules-based workflow that facilitated collaboration, transparency, and shared leadership at the school level.
