One of the effective mechanisms for implementing the requirements and principles of the Bologna process in the RA university system was the establishment of quality assurance centers. Due to the progress of the implemented reforms, in June 2011, within the framework of the TEMPUS-PICQA project, the Quality Assurance and Control Center was established at the GSPI, which in 2012 was reorganized as an independent structural unit of the university - Quality Assurance Center․

Later, the center operated as a Quality Assurance and Management Center (2017-2018), a Scientific Policy, Quality Assurance and Management Center (2018-2023).

As a result of the structural reforms carried out at SUSh, the Quality Assurance Department of State University of Shirak was established by the decision of the Board of Trustees' meeting No. 17 of May 27, 2023.
