Higher Education Information Technology Statistics (HEITS)
In 1996-7 UCISA began gathering statistical information about IT service providers in higher education. This has become an annual exercise, now in its eighteenth year.

The survey includes a number of questions drawn from the EDUCAUSE Core Data Service Survey. UCISA and EDUCAUSE staff are working together to draw comparisons from the results from the common questions in the two surveys.
Results from previous years are available for comparison. Summary information is publicly available but detailed data is only available to members. The raw data for each return is available to named UCISA representatives from Full and Affiliate members only.
The information gathered allows certain ratios to be calculated which largely follow those recommended in the Funding Councils' Value for Money Study on Information Systems and Technology Management published in 1998.
