Chapter 1: Overview

High-level comparison of indicative funding for 2013 with final funding for 2012

1.39Table 1.5 compares 2012 final and 2013 indicative funding allocations and reveals a range of changes across TEOs, reflecting both the shift in distribution from their performance in the 2012 QE and the increased amount of total funding available. These changes are discussed more fully in chapter two.

Universities

1.40Three universities saw reductions between their 2012 final and 2013 indicative allocations. The University of Canterbury experienced the largest decrease, falling by 4.92 percent or $1.27 million (including a $552,278 decrease in QE funding).

1.41Auckland University of Technology experienced the most significant percentage increase, up 50.77 percent or $4.02 million on its final 2012 allocation, largely due to a rise in QE funding of $3.56 million. Significant dollar increases in indicative funding were also seen by the University of Auckland ($6.12 million) and Victoria University of Wellington ($3.37 million), again reflecting sizeable gains through the 2012 QE ($4.05 million and $1.55 million respectively).

ITP sectorTop

1.42Taken as a whole, indicative 2013 funding for the ITP sector dropped slightly, down by 0.06 percent on its total final allocations for 2012. While this was a marginal decrease overall, some providers experienced significant changes.

1.43Whitireia Community Polytechnic and the Eastern Institute of Technology saw gains of 114.29 percent ($89,279) and 102.37 percent ($250,539) respectively, due almost entirely to increases in QE funding. Wellington Institute of Technology notably participated in the PBRF for the first time and received an indicative allocation of $149,327 for 2013, while Nelson Marlborough Institute of Technology lost its previous QE funding ($85,360) as it did not participate in the 2012 QE.

Other TEOsTop

1.44Across wānanga and PTEs, the most notable changes between 2012 final and 2013 indicative funding related to participation – or lack thereof – in the 2012 QE: for 2013, Te Wānanga o Aotearoa and Anamata lost their previous entitlement to a PBRF allocation, while New Zealand College of Chiropractic and New Zealand Tertiary College each received a PBRF allocation for the first time.
