The educational and financial performance of Manukau Institute of Technology (MIT) was strong in 2011. MIT improved its educational performance compared with 2010, and was above the ITP sector average.

Responsiveness

In 2011, in conjunction with Counties Manukau District Health Board and the University of Auckland, MIT opened the Ko Awatea centre at Middlemore Hospital, providing innovation in the field of healthcare education and research. MIT continues to increase its accessibility to students in the region, as evidenced by the construction of the Manukau Tertiary Centre getting under way in 2011. MIT has partnerships with Unitec and Te Wānanga o Aotearoa.

In 2011 MIT increased its EFTS by seven percent (400 EFTS), with the majority of the increase at Levels 7–8. Provision at Levels 3–4 in 2011 (at 40%) decreased compared to 2010, while delivery at Levels 7–8 continued to increase. The main fields of study at MIT in 2011 were Management and Commerce (21%), Society and Culture (20%) and Engineering and Related Technologies (13%).

Participation by under-25-year-olds continued to increase in 2011, but at 49 percent was still below the ITP sector average, as was Māori participation at 15 percent. Pasifika participation continued to increase and was well above the ITP sector average, accounting for 33 percent of total enrolments. In 2011 MIT had 472 full fee-paying international EFTS (870 students).

MIT achieved the majority of the key performance indicators outlined in its 2011 Statement of Service Performance. Where indicators were not met, the difference between actual and target was marginal.

Effectiveness

In 2011 MIT achieved above the ITP sector averages on three of the four education performance indicators, with qualification completions being slightly below the ITP average (61% against 63%). Performance by Māori, Pasifika and students under 25 years was above the ITP sector average for all indicators, except qualification completions by under-25-year-olds.

MIT received 0.2 percent of the 2011 total allocation for the Performance-Based Research Fund (PBRF), the same share as in 2010. It earned PBRF-eligible external research income of $94,413 in 2011, a 39 percent decrease on 2010.

Capability

In 2011 the MIT council re-assessed the capability of its membership following the reconstitution of ITP councils, which had restricted council-appointed members to an initial term of one year. The assessment resulted in the MIT council deciding to retain its existing members.

In 2011, MIT reported a net surplus of 3.1 percent ($3.3 million), similar to the three percent surplus achieved in 2010. MIT's total revenue increased by 3.2 percent ($3.3 million) from 2010 to 2011, including a $2.0 million (3.1%) increase in government revenue. Total costs rose at a similar level. During the period MIT obtained borrowing consent to enable the start of construction of the Manukau Tertiary Centre.

In 2011, MIT applied for the transfer into its own title of all the Crown-titled land and buildings that it manages. The application was under consideration at year end. MIT's capital expenditure between 2012 and 2021 is forecast to be the highest amongst ITPs, due primarily to the $73 million Manukau development being the largest single project planned in the ITP sector over the period. This is in response to changing demand in Manukau. From 2012 onwards, the majority of capital spending is targeted at replacing or refurbishing assets.
