Business Intelligence for Independent Schools (BIIS) is NBOA's signature data platform. Available exclusively to NBOA members, BIIS was designed by business officers, for business officers. It offers independent school leaders a comprehensive look at their financial health and sustainability metrics, as well as business office compensation and staffing information, all of which can be benchmarked against similar schools in a national data set.
NBOA partners with NAIS on collection efforts for financial operations data. As a result, schools will enter data in NAIS’s Data and Analysis for School Leadership (DASL). This data will populate and inform reporting in both DASL and NBOA’s BIIS. This means you need to enter financial data only one time — in DASL — and this data will port over to NBOA’s BIIS data platform to populate your reports, benchmarking tools, and financial sustainability tools, including NBOA’s financial dashboard and CFI calculator.
BIIS reporting for the 2021-22 school year is now open if your school entered data for this period.
This document outlines the reporting tools in BIIS, including how to create peer groups, export data and provide access to others from your school.
