The vendor is expected to propose a system that meets and/or exceeds the current and future needs of AICB’s examination development and delivery process.

The users of this system are categorised into two groups:

  • Internal users: Assessment Staff, Finance Staff and Management
  • External users: Members/Candidates of AICB and Examiners.

The system should be accessible from any web browser, e.g. Google Chrome, Internet Explorer, and Safari, via laptops and mobile devices.

The system must be able to integrate with existing AICB systems, including:

  • Integrated Membership and Qualification System (IMQS)
  • Learning Management System (Moodle)
  • AICB website
  • AICB Data Mart.

The system should cover two key business areas:

  • Exam development, which includes the following processes:
    • Question bank management
    • Question authoring
    • Test assembly functions
  • Exam registration and delivery, which includes the following processes:
    • Eligibility Setting
    • Exam Scheduling
    • Exam Registration
    • Identity Verification
    • Remote Proctoring
    • Mark and Result Processing.

Members can either opt to attempt an examination via remote proctoring at their preferred location, or at an accredited test centre.
