1.30Across all three measures, final funding allocations were only marginally higher in 2011 than in 2010. The full amount of the $250 million annual appropriation was disbursed in final funding for 2011 – that is, over $30,000 more than final allocations for the previous year. However, the performance of some TEOs led to a reduction in their funding.

1.31For some TEOs, the differences in final funding allocations between 2010 and 2011 led to a change in their total PBRF funding. Thus in Table 1.2 above, three couplets of providers inverted their order between years, with the first of each of the following pairs receiving more funding in 2011 than the second; Northland Polytechnic and Laidlaw College; Eastern Institute of Technology and the Open Polytechnic; Te Wānanga o Aotearoa and Whitecliffe College of Arts and Design.

1.32Final funding for each of the three measures increased by 0.01 percent in 2011. This was applied as a flat rate of change for every participating TEO in the QE component, while percentage changes for the ERI and RDC components varied widely between providers in 2011. More detailed analysis is provided in subsequent chapters on each of the three measures.
