Our recommendations

Investing in tertiary education assets.

We recommend that the Ministry of Education, the Tertiary Education Commission, and other education agencies work with tertiary education institutions to improve the use of, and investment in, tertiary education assets by:

  1. improving business case guidance and assessment criteria to support tertiary education institutions in considering how their business cases and asset investment proposals are affected by the investment decisions of other tertiary education institutions; and
  2. considering further types of analysis, measures, and forecasting that could improve the collective effectiveness of the investment in tertiary education assets.
