Release of the guidelines for the PBRF 2018 Quality Evaluation

30 June 2016

We are pleased to announce the release of the guidelines for the Performance-Based Research Fund (PBRF) 2018 Quality Evaluation.

The Tertiary Education Commission (the TEC) and the PBRF Sector Reference Group have developed operational guidelines for the 2018 Quality Evaluation following two years of engagement and support from the tertiary sector and other key stakeholders.  

We thank the members of the PBRF Sector Reference Group and all those who participated in the public consultation and review processes. This input has been extremely valuable in the development of the guidelines and making the Quality Evaluation transparent and fit-for-purpose.

The guidelines have been split into three audience-specific documents:

  • Guidelines for tertiary education organisations participating in the 2018 Quality Evaluation.
  • Guidelines for the 2018 Quality Evaluation Assessment process.
  • A guide for staff members participating in the 2018 Quality Evaluation.

The guidelines are being released now to provide information and guidance well in advance to all those involved in the preparation for the 2018 Quality Evaluation.  We will also publish the PBRF panel-specific guidelines in July 2016.

You can find the Sector Reference Group consultation papers, sector feedback and our decisions on the SRG Consultation Papers page of the website.

You can access the guidelines at the PBRF Resources and Publications page of the website.
