Performance-linked funding

Performance-linked funding applies to Student Achievement Component (SAC) funded Tertiary Education Organisations (TEOs).

Performance-linked funding is one of a number of approaches intended to improve educational outcomes for students and employers and improve value for taxpayers’ money.

Performance-linked funding is targeted to encourage all SAC-funded TEOs to reach an acceptable standard of educational performance.

The TEC publishes performance information annually for all SAC-funded TEOs[1]. SAC-funded TEOs also have to define performance commitments as part of their Investment Plans. These performance commitments encompass the Government’s priorities in the Tertiary Education Strategy 2014–19.
