TEQSA advises HE providers that, “experts undertaking independent reviews must be fully independent”

“If an expert is not independent, their judgement and the quality of their review may be influenced by other interests,” the Tertiary Education Quality and Standards Agency states.

And for anybody who still does not get it TEQSA, adds, “In its regulatory processes, TEQSA will give greater weight to reviews completed by fully independent experts than by experts reasonably perceived as not independent.”
