Chapter 2: The Quality Evaluation measure

Quality Evaluation funding allocations for 2011, 2012, and 2013

2.8This section provides comparative analysis of QE financials between years. The 2006 QE fixed TEOs’ relative performance and ratios for this measure until the end of 2012. This means that any changes for the QE component over this period are a function of pool size and any adjustments from the wash-up process or data corrections.

2.9Since the 2006 QE, universities have received 96.57 percent of funding against this measure.6 The 3.43 percent balance of the QE funding the other TEOs together receive equated to $5.15 million in 2012.

2012 final and 2013 indicative allocationsTop

2.10The appropriation for the QE component rose from $150 million in 2012 to $157.5 million for 2013. As noted, TEOs’ ratios changed over this period, resulting in shifts in distribution and shares of funding for the first time in six years.

UniversitiesTop

2.11Following the 2012 QE, the university sector’s indicative QE funding for 2013 increased by 5.14 percent or $7.44 million, representing 96.69 percent of the total QE funding.

2.12Between 2012 final QE funding and 2013 indicative QE funding, the largest increase in dollar terms was seen by the University of Auckand (up $4.05 million or 9.99 percent). Auckland University of Technology experienced the most significant overall increase, growing by $3.56 million or 86.56 percent on its $4.11 million final allocation in 2012. Significant changes were also realised by Victoria University of Wellington which ranked first in the 2012 QE, after previously being ranked fourth, and saw an increase of $1.55 million (10.64 percent) in 2013 indicative funding.

2.13In 2013 indicative allocations, sizeable reductions on 2012 QE funding were sustained by the University of Waikato (down $1.01 million or 10.59 percent) and by Lincoln University (down $394,981 or 8.44 percent).

ITPsTop

2.14In the ITP sector, the largest monetary gains resulting from the 2012 QE were seen at Otago Polytechnic (up $293,401 or 58.58 percent) and the Eastern Institute of Technology (up $274,230 or 171.71 percent). Whitireia Community Polytechnic more than doubled its QE funding from a small baseline (allocated $83,226 for 2013), and Wellington Institute of Technology was set to receive QE funding for the first time in 2013 ($110,855).

2.15Four ITPs (Unitec New Zealand, Manukau Institute of Technology, Waikato Institute of Technology, and the Open Polytechnic of New Zealand) were allocated reduced funding for 2013. Compared with final 2012 funding, Unitec New Zealand was set to undergo the largest drop in dollar terms ($385,276 or 16.52 percent). Nelson Marlborough Institute of Technology, which received $85,360 in 2012, receives no QE funding in 2013.

Other TEOsTop

2.16Te Whare Wānanga o Awanuiārangi’s indicative QE funding decreased by 30.58 percent to $138,476 for 2013, while Te Wānanga o Aotearoa lost its previous PBRF QE funding of $162,661 as a non-participant in the 2012 QE.

2.17The comparatively small baselines of PTEs resulted in wide, and sometimes high, rates of change between QE rounds but relatively small dollar amounts. Most notably, improved performance from the 2012 assessment led to the increase of $93,851 (218.85 percent) in the indicative 2013 allocation for Whitecliffe College of Arts and Design, and Laidlaw College’s $38,819 rise on its 2012 final funding (up 150.01 percent).
