What is SA-SAMS?

SA School Administration and Management System:

is a robust, actively developed and maintained computer application, specifically designed to meet all School Administration, Management and Governance needs of South African Schools (Public, Specialised, Full-Service and Private). The solution has a strong EMIS focus to assist Schools, PEDs and DBE in record keeping, reporting and statistical analysis, by means of an innovative approach that allows end-users to shape the development of the solution itself. Data is collected on a National basis by means of LURITS (the Learner Unit Record Information and Tracking System), where it can be securely accessed for further analysis (Data Driven Districts) for effective decision-making on various levels.

Why was SA-SAMS developed?

Schools used separate applications in their day-to-day running, e.g. separate Administration Systems for Learners, Curriculum Related Data, Finances, Timetabling, the Library, etc. and an enormous amount of manually prepared reports and lists. This resulted in a continuous, time-consuming, counter-productive cycle of duplication of data into two, or more, separate systems that weren’t speaking to one another. Incompatible systems, regular updates, expensive training, exaggerated licensing fees, as well as development and support costs were frequently prevalent. Thus, SA-SAMS was developed.
