University financial and capital analysis

Commonwealth Department of Education and Training

The results were presented to the Higher Education Infrastructure Working Group, established to advise the Government on current practices and future options for supporting universities’ teaching and research infrastructure needs. The Working Group’s members are Philip Marcus Clark AM and Emeritus Professor Denise Bradley AC. The analysis prepared by PhillipsKPA has formed the basis of consultations by the Working Group with each university.
