Business Intelligence for Independent Schools

BIIS

Business Intelligence for Independent Schools (BIIS) is NBOA's signature data-collection tool. It combines data from nearly every previous NBOA research effort to provide independent schools with a comprehensive look at their financial health, sustainability and staffing compared to similar schools in a national data set.

Exclusively for NBOA members, BIIS was designed by business officers, for business officers to analyze a wide range of operational and compensation data and distill it into accurate and meaningful graphs schools can use to set benchmarks and make important decisions.

The data collected include:

  • Tuition and fees
  • Compensation and staffing
  • Facilities expenses
  • Financial aid
  • Annual giving income
  • Auxiliary income and expenses
  • Instructional expenses
  • Administrative expenses
  • Technology expenses
  • Interest/investment income

Reporting is available if your data was submitted in November. Data collection is open for the 2016-17 year.
