In 1981, with the aim of providing more reliable and regularly updated information toward a more accurate assessment of the faculty, provision was made for a Faculty Data Bank (FDB) which serves as the central repository of the official and regularly updated faculty records of the University. The Faculty Data Bank (FDB) was under the direct supervision of the Office of Academic Affairs.
However, when the Faculty Collective Bargaining Agreement (CBA) assigned to the Office of the Vice-Rector for Academic Affairs (OVRAA) the direct responsibility over faculty classification and promotion, and eventually, FDB was given broader functions, that is, not only to address the difficulty in devising criteria for faculty promotion and reclassification but also to provide support to the important tasks of OVRAA on matters related to hiring, faculty evaluation, promotions, appointments, tenureship, retirement and faculty training and development, the Office for Faculty Evaluation and Development (OFED) was created in 2003. As a sub-unit of the Office of the Vice-Rector for Academic Affairs (OVRAA), OFED maintains the Faculty Data Bank, which remains an important part of its daily operations.
