This paper aims to review a proposed Quality Assurance system (QA) which suggests developing the internal quality assurance system of academic programs at the College of Computer and Information Sciences (CCIS), Princess Nourah Bint Abdulrahman University (PNU), Riyadh, Kingdom of Saudi Arabia (KSA), by replacing the existing paper-based QA System into a web-based system. In general, the QA system will work as: providing users the required NCAAA (National Commission for Academic Accreditation and Assessment) reports' forms to be filled. Then, the proposed QA system will gather forms and generates completed reports. At the same time, it provides them to the decision makers. The proposed QA system will allow decision makers to approve reports and view gathered information in many views in which will facilitate the making decision processes in continuing improvement of the educational processes and outcomes. Also, QA system can be extended and applied to other PNU colleges. After that, it can be applied to all KSA universities.
