How does one monitor accreditation for a school at a university? A job description lists monitoring accreditation standards for a school -- both regionally and also with a particular accrediting body for that discipline (say, like APA for psychology). It also must take into account oversight of extension campus accreditation. What would you assume this responsibility requires?

I'm trying to research this, but I am not exactly sure what to be looking for to make sure I have all the information. I believe that it requires report writing to the accrediting agency, and also putting together committees for self-assessments and final evaluations by the accrediting body. Can anyone point me to good resources online, or tell me from first-hand experience? I'd like to understand "big picture" what this may mean in terms of overall responsibilities, but also understand the minutia of getting the job done, from beginning (committee formation?) to end (which I assume is a final report/evaluation/visit from accrediting agency).
