These FAQs relate to the audit process of the PBRF 2018 Quality Evaluation.   

Q. Is there a list of the types of acceptable evidence that the auditors will use to determine if staff and research contributions are eligible?

A. No, there is no list of specific evidence requirements for the staff eligibility criteria or the research contribution component eligibility criteria. The reason for this is that there are a variety of management practices, including systems, processes and controls, used to manage the Quality Evaluation process in each of the eligible TEOs.

However, you do need to ensure that you keep the evidence and information you used to make decisions about the eligibility of your staff, and about the research outputs and research contributions you submit. The TEC auditors will use this information and evidence as the basis of their audit reviews.
