In preparation for the Performance-Based Research Fund (PBRF) Quality Evaluation in 2025, the TEC is seeking expressions of interest for Co-chairs of the sector reference group (SRG).

The SRG will provide advice and recommendations to us on operational changes to the design of the 2025 Quality Evaluation. The SRG’s recommendations will be developed as part of a public consultation process.
The SRG process is expected to run from July 2021 to June 2023, when we will finalise updated Quality Evaluation Guidelines.
Expressions of interest forms are due to PBRF.Help@tec.govt.nz by 5pm on 12 May 2021.
About the PBRF
The purpose of the Performance-Based Research Fund (PBRF) is to ensure that excellent research in the tertiary education sector is encouraged and rewarded.  This means assessing the research performance of tertiary education organisations (TEOs) and then funding them on the basis of their performance.
The Quality Evaluation is an assessment of the research performance of staff at eligible TEOs. TEOs present their staff members’ research in Evidence Portfolios that are assessed for quality by expert peer review panels.  The results set the allocations for 55 percent of the $315 million a year fund.
The Quality Evaluation is held periodically. The most recent Quality Evaluation was held in 2018 and the next one will be held in 2025. There have been four previous Quality Evaluation rounds in 2003, 2006, 2012, and 2018.
