Alison Allden is Chief Executive of the Higher Education Statistics Agency, which collects data from all of the higher education institutions in the UK and makes information and intelligence on the provision of higher education available to interested parties.

"I have been involved in the collection and provision of information through much of my career in higher education (as a University Director of IS and senior executive) and appreciate the importance of identifying standards that allow for information sharing and the collection of meaningful administrative and management information. The need for good quality information that both supports individual learners and the planning and provision of education is vital for the whole sector and I am glad that I am able to contribute to this through the Information Standards Board."
