Note:

The figures are the net payments over the academic year; they may differ from the original allocations as they include the reclaiming and redistribution of unused funds. The 2005-06 reclaimed figure includes unspent funds reclaimed from the earlier part-time fee waiver scheme.

To ask the Secretary of State for Innovation, Universities and Skills how many institutions have been overpaid by the Higher Education Funding Council for England in each of the last 10 years; and by how much in each case. (259145)

Overpayments can be identified for a variety of reasons following an audit of an institution’s records. There is then a process of mitigation to determine the extent of any repayment. In addition there are ongoing adjustments to grant throughout the year to reflect student recruitment against indicative plans. As a result the information requested is not readily available. It is held across a disparate set of paper and electronic records and would take a considerable amount of time and resource to assemble. This information is therefore available only at disproportionate cost.
