Overpaid at TEQSA

The Tertiary Education Quality and Standards Agency reports it has identified $181 000 in travel allowance overpaid between October 2015 and April ’20

According to the Agency’s annual report, the money was considered a “recoverable debt,” but while TEQSA has recovered $2744, the $178 000 balance is “not legally recoverable.” However, the report states “the debt is not formally waived.”

There were 98 payments over the period.

“TEQSA is putting in place improvements to internal controls to prevent a reoccurrence of the overpayments,” the annual report states.
