Teqsa Third Party Agreements

TEQSA is particularly interested in knowing when an HEP hires another organization, particularly offshore, to teach part of a course offered by this hep. A HEP that offers a distinction is responsible for the whole of the teaching related to the organization of the course that leads to this award and is therefore responsible for learning by the third party. 5.3 Audits examine the obligations of each party defined in the agreement, the extent to which each party has complied with its obligations, and the extent to which the third party has complied with the guidelines and procedures it must follow. Due Diligence refers to the investigative process in which the university assesses the suitability of a third party before entering into a program supply contract. Today, many universities work with third parties in the private sector to enroll and deliver courses to students, particularly internationally (or help them take courses). 3.1 A legally binding third-party agreement must be reached with a third party before the start of operations. The agreement must cover all relevant topics relating to the extent and extent of third-party crossing missions. It will also outline the rights and responsibilities of the university and the third-party organization with respect to the agreement. The table of partnership agreements notified to TEQSA (PDF) mentions the main types of agreements flinders participates in, the potential risks to Flinders` ability to meet the thresholds, and whether these agreements should be notified to TEQSA. 3.9 The terms of third-party agreements must be communicated to students before registration and during their studies, including: 2.2 In order to reduce risks and quality defects and to ensure the choice of a reliable third party with which a partner must work, a credible, rigorous and factual due diligence process is implemented before reaching an agreement with third parties. As part of the due diligence process, a number of issues are addressed, including: in the context of COVID-19, the threat of financial collapse for a number of private suppliers puts these third-party agreements in the spotlight. In any event, the university must consider the steps that can and should be taken to avoid or minimize prejudice for students in the event of a third party participating in the registration or organization of their courses. Guidelines for the development and approval of third-party agreements are available in the flinders Policy Library.

All third-party agreements must be approved and signed before being implemented.
