3 © PA Knowledge Limited Page 3 PPT presentation template V1-12.ppt Project Aim The Benchmarking to improve efficiency status report, published on November 2010 stated: ‘UK universities are under increasing pressure to show how they perform relative to universities in the global community and there is growing interest in transnational benchmarking to make reliable international comparisons and learn from other HE systems.’ PA are therefore tasked with undertaking the following:  Needs assessment – a brief exercise to identify the critical needs and uses of international benchmark information  Review of available resources – a desk exercise to identify and assess the available resources for each of the five interpretations of benchmarking, grading them against the requirements and criteria identified through the initial needs analysis.  Assessment of gaps and unmet needs – we will apply our judgement and sector knowledge to assess the extent to which the available resources meet the sector’s expressed needs for benchmarking information  Proposals for meeting future benchmarking needs – our report from the previous stages of work will summarise the sector’s needs for international benchmarking information, the extent to which these are or could be met from current resources
