Late in 1993 Australian universities were visited for one day by small subcommittees (four people) representing the Committee for Quality Assurance in Higher Education (CQAHE) which was given the task of recommending to the Minister of Employment, Education and Training how A$75 million of 'reward money' for quality should be distributed among the nearly 40 universities in Australia. It was known that the Committee was required to discover rewardable quality in no more than 50 per cent of the institutions. The reasoning was that institutions do not deserve a reward for simply 'doing their job'; that is what they are funded to do. This money was to be an incentive to excel.
