Quite a number of Nigerian universities have come to terms with the need for accurate storage and fast retrieval of information by putting in place some form of administrative computing for students registration, examination processing, staff records and payroll. However, there was no uniformity or standards among these universities in software development, or compatibility in the hardware procured thereby making it difficult for national supervisory and regulatory bodies to obtain the much needed statutory information from the universities.
This paper discusses the introduction of an effective MIS through the installation of a collaboratively developed standard software in some Nigerian universities. The project which is on-going, is funded by the Nigerian government, through the National Universities Commission (NUC), and was initially supported by the Overseas Development Administration (ODA), through the British Council. The authors are active participants in the design and implementation of the project.
