Expert Panel for Performance-Based Funding for the Commonwealth Grant Scheme
Education and Training
The Expert Panel for Performance-Based Funding for the Commonwealth Grant Scheme has been appointed to provide advice to the Minister for Education on the design and implementation of performance-based funding for universities. Among the matters the panel will consider are the following: • The appropriate performance measures to be used for assessing performance and their weighting • How to address the disparity in attainment rates across Australia • How to create incentives that genuinely encourage improved performance, so that performance-based funding does not become a “tick-box” exercise or an unattainable goal • How to account for the varied missions and strengths of different providers, including regional providers • Evidence from international examples of performance-based funding • Optional processes and timeframes for the ongoing setting and evaluation of individual university targets.
