A brief description of the institution’s assurance process:

Douglas College's assurance process had two phases:
1) Internal quality check
In this phase, an internal STARS Steering Committee from Douglas College conducted a detailed review of the submission to fix any typos, grammatical errors, and data/information inconsistencies. Members of the Steering Committee from Douglas College included:
- Dave Taylor, VP Public Affairs
- Regan Lal, Director, Marketing & Communications
- Chris Gardner, Director, Facilities & Ancillary Services
- Louie Girotto, Associate Director, Physical Plant Services
- Declan Walsh, Manager, Supply Chain
- Sarah Lock, Executive Assistant, Public Affairs

2) External audit
Following step 1, the formal reporting assurance process took place, which involved a review by the staff from the University of the Fraser Valley listed above. The results of that review is captured in the attached STARS Review Template and Statement of Affirmation.
