Regulatory Partnership Group
The Regulatory Partnership Group (RPG) was established in September 2011 by HEFCE and the Student Loans Company (SLC). Its purpose is to advise Government, HEFCE and other national agencies on policy, strategic and operational issues arising from the development of the new funding and regulatory regime for higher education.
It was known as the Interim Regulatory Partnership Group for the first nine months of its existence.
Keep in touch via our e-mail alerts.
The RPG's membership is drawn from the public bodies involved in implementing the changes to the funding and regulatory frameworks of English higher education. This follows a request in the ministerial letter of 13 June 2012 to HEFCE and the Student Loans Company.
RPG has designed a work programme to implement the planned changes. It is made up of four elements:
- Developing an operating framework
The operating framework will set out the roles, responsibilities, relationships and accountabilities of the various organisations involved in the regulation of HE in England.
- Developing the successor to HEFCE’s Financial Memorandum (FM)
This will reflect the changing landscape of higher education funding and accountabilities.
- Redesigning the data and information landscape
A project to enhance the arrangements for the collection, sharing and dissemination of data and information about the HE system.
- Investigating constitutions and corporate forms
This project will look at changing corporate forms of HE providers and their implications for the student interest, the public interest and the reputation of the HE system.
