Bristol Online Survey (BOS) is an easy-to-use online tool for creating, distributing and analysing surveys. It is entirely web-based with no limits on the number of surveys you can create or the number of respondents you can have. It also allows surveys to be shared and supports collaborative survey development. Visit the BOS support web site for more information.
The University's Information Security Team have assessed the data security statement for the BOS service. They consider the service to be acceptable for public and internal data only. BOS will be transferred to Jisc in the Autumn of 2017 and it is possible that the security framework and the scope of Jisc's ISO27001 certification will be extended to include their BOS service. In this case the survey tool may become suitable for sensitive data as well, but currently it is not.
IT Services manage an organisation-wide licence for BOS and any student, staff member or academic visitor can request an account for creating surveys via the button below.
