Expected Result 1.1 The ENIC is formally established and performing its respective tasks. A BiH action plan (NAP) is drawn up and endorsed by the BiH authorities. The manager of the BiH ENIC is identified and qualified/trained. The establishment of a website and data base is under way (technical facilities and structure is in place, first data available).
The ENIC is effectively providing the relevant information and processing applications. The staff produces regular reports. Meetings with the relevant stakeholders take place regularly. The Centre is represented at international meetings. Websites of other countries are refering to the BiH ENIC office and the BiH ENIC is contributing to the work of the ENIC network.

A blueprint of accreditation standards for HE institutions are developed with the relevant institutions and authorities. (Ministries, Rectors' Conference, BiH universities, eventually CIRQA). A mentor for CIRQA identified through the ENQA network (European Association for Quality Assurance in Higher Education) assists with the development of a blueprint for a state-level CIRQA, including a Terms of Reference, cooperation model and development plan and the formal establishment of the CIRQA.
Guidelines for internal and external quality assurance mechanisms and evaluation are available. Criteria for assessing learning outcomes is available. Questionnaires for self assessment are piloted at Universities. Accreditation standards for HE institutions are available. A roadmap for the further implementation of internal and external quality assurance mechanisms and evaluation is endorsed by the relevant stakeholders. Terms of Reference, cooperation model and development plan are available.

Expected Result 1.3 A framework for higher education qualifications (HEQ) is underway: A grid for entry and completion qualifications for the three cycles is developed within the future overall BiH Qualifications Framework. The applicability of the grid is verified on the basis of 1-2 individual subjects/professions (e.g. human science and law). A roadmap for the further elaboration of the framework is agreed upon by the relevant stakeholders.
The framework for HEQ cycles (grid for entry and completion qualifications for the three cycles) is available with concrete examples. The framework for HEQ is a connecting piece for/within the overall BiH Qualifications Framework. A roadmap for the further elaboration of the framework is endorsed by the relevant stakeholders.
