Chapter 2 : The Quality Evaluation measure

Quality Evaluation funding allocations for 2010, 2011, and 2012

2.7As in the PBRF Annual Report 2010, this section provides comparative analysis of QE financials both within and between years. The relative performance of TEOs has not changed since the 2006 QE which fixed their ratios for this measure until the 2012 round. As noted earlier, changes for the QE component are thus a function of pool size, and any adjustments from the wash-up process or data corrections.

2.8Between the final 2010 and final 2011 allocations, the pool available for the QE component increased very marginally by 0.01 percent. Accordingly, each provider received an additional 0.01 percent of its share of funding, as fixed by the 2006 ratios. As set out in Table 2.3 above, the dollar amounts varied widely, ranging from an increase of $5,067 for the University of Auckland (making up 27.02 percent of the pool) to an extra $2 for Anamata.

2.9Since the 2006 Quality Evaluation, universities have received 96.57 percent of funding against this measure.5 Other TEOs together receive 3.43 percent of the funding allocated through this measure. In 2011, this equated to $5.15 million in final funding.

2011 final and 2012 indicative allocationsTop

2.10The maximum amount of the PBRF appropriation ring-fenced for the QE component ($150 million) was available in both 2011 and 2012. This meant that providers’ indicative allocations – based on the 2006 Quality Evaluation ratios – were the same for both years. In Table 2.5 below, each TEO’s increase in indicative funding is therefore identical to the amount it lost after the wash-up for 2011.
