NZQA Reviews Fees for Quality Audits

NZQA Reviews Fees for Quality Audits

The Board of the New Zealand Qualifications Authority has approved changes to the fees it charges Private Training Establishments (PTEs), Government Training Establishments, Wananga and Unitec New Zealand, for quality audits.

Acting Chief Executive Karen Sewell said the Qualifications Authority signalled a review of these fees late last year.

"A full-scale review was undertaken to bring fees and charges in line with Qualifications Authority costs. The review is now complete and the Board has approved the changes."

The schedule of fees is as follows:

- An annual fee of $775 plus $10 per Equivalent Full Time Student (EFTS).

- The annual fee to be calculated on the same basis for all providers, including Government Training Establishments.

- No cap on the annual fee. All providers will be charged according to their total EFTS. The previous cap of 2,250 EFTS will no longer apply.

- A minimum audit fee of $2,975 for each audit. This includes 19 hours of auditor time and three hours of operational support.

- Time in excess of this charged at the current rate of $150 per hour.

All other services provided to these organisations will be charged at the existing rates.

The new fees schedule will come into effect from 1 January 2006. All audits whose site visits are on or after 1 January 2006 will be charged under the new fees schedule.
