TEQSA cuts ‘chance to restructure’

TEQSA cuts ‘chance to restructure’  | BERNARD LANE | The Australian Higher Education | 19 February, 2014

A ROUND of redundancies at the higher education regulator is an opportunity to restructure the agency and make it less top-heavy, say former senior staffers.

They say the Tertiary Education Quality and Standards Agency, which faces political and provider pressure to cut red tape, is seeking to cut seven to nine positions, the number depending on the salaries of those who go. TEQSA had 93 staff at June 30 last year, having hired 38 people in 2012-13.
