Besides its mandated role as the prime producer of official statistics in Rwanda, the National Institute of Statistics or Rwanda (NISR) is entrusted with the coordination responsibilities of the entire National Statistical System. This implies that NISR must keep track with any data collection endeavors undertaken in the country, with the aim of ensuring high quality statistics that will adequately serve their purposes.

In order to realize this aspect of coordination, all survey undertakers are requested to approach NISR two times: first in the design stage so as to get NISR approval on the proposed survey procedures and arrangement, second after preparation of the survey report to get the approval for publishing the results.
