Compliance monitoring approach

Australian higher education providers must meet a range of obligations under the Higher Education Standards Framework (Threshold Standards) 2021 (HES Framework).

Our compliance monitoring approach supports us to identify any current or emerging risks of non-compliance with these obligations and target them proactively.

This work is informed by our Compliance Monitoring Framework, provider risk assessments and other information sources.

TEQSA uses a prioritisation model to identify risks and allocate resources. This includes setting annual compliance priorities to focus our work.

In the event we identify non-compliance with the HES Framework, our response is guided by our Compliance and Enforcement policy.

We also publish an annual compliance report that outlines our priorities and updates the sector on progress from the previous year.

This report also includes guidance for higher education providers to help them meet obligations.
