The AIR National Survey of IR Offices collects data as part of a national benchmarking project to help leaders of IR offices compare their office operations against their peers to identify areas of needed improvement. The National Survey is framed around the following four areas of inquiry:
- How is the office structured (e.g., reporting lines, type of work produced by the office)?
- How is the office staffed (e.g., staffing roles, staff FTE, staff headcount)?
- What financial resources does the office manage (e.g., office expenses, professional development budget, staff salaries)?
- Who are users or clients of the office?
The first National Survey launched in fall 2015 and the second iteration launched in fall 2018. This coming fall, we will launch the third National Survey. The survey development team is busy updating the next version of the National Survey of IR Offices and we need your help!
We want to interview 30 IR office leaders from a wide range of institutions regarding their ideas on how to improve the National Survey metrics. These interviews will last 20-30 minutes and will be conducted during the next 3 weeks. If you would like to be considered, please provide us with your contact information.
