CAUL-Industry Think TankIntra-consortium cost allocation: CAUL-SCIP model Alex Byrne University of Technology, Sydney
SCIP National Site Licence Working Group Criteria • Transparency • Inclusiveness • Fairness • Predictability • Sustainability
Transparency • The data used in the cost allocation model should be drawn from verifiable sources such as • DEST data • CAUL/AARL statistics • The formula should be easily comprehensible
Inclusiveness • The cost allocations determined by the formula should enable the participation of any interested member of the consortium • Institutional characteristics such as size, location, distribution of campuses should not inhibit participation
Fairness • The formula should apply relevant criteria which reflect the value or potential value of the resource to each participant eg • For research • To coursework students
Predictability • Large variations in cost allocation from year to year should be avoided and hence … • Data used should not be volatile
Sustainability • The formula should be robust so that the consortium will be unlikely to collapse if prices rise or a few members leave
Student numbers Research student numbers Research student completions Student ethnic diversity Equity measures Staff numbers Total university income Research income Size of collection Current subscriptions Library budget Number of branches Number of ILLs supplied/requested University Librarian’s discretion Vice-Chancellor’s humility Publishers’ philanthropy Possible criteria
Modifications and adjustments • To include or exclude print • For prior subscription • For different packages • To apply credits • To not exceed previous expenditure • To apply maxima or minima
Formulae - characteristics • Weighted • Flag fall or threshold • Capped • Banded • Equal number in each band • By category of library (eg Go8, ATN, Go5) • At break points in the data

Central Queensland University University of Canberra Southern Cross University Australian Catholic University Northern Territory University University of Ballarat Bond University Australian Defence Force Academy University of the Sunshine Coast University of Notre Dame Australia None move from this quartile SCIP –Model D – fourth quartile
SCIP – sorted by Model A • Model A: 1/2 RQ and 1/2 eftsu • RMIT, UWA and Adelaide go down • CSU and VUT go up
SCIP – sorted by Model B • Model B: 1/3 RQ and 1/3 eftsu and 1/3 resources budget • RMIT goes down • ANU and La Trobe go up
SCIP – sorted by Model C • Model C: 1/4 RQ and 1/4 research pop 1/4 eftsu and 1/4 resources budget • ANU and La Trobe go up
SCIP – sorted by Model E • Model E: 1/2 RQ and 1/4 eftsu and 1/4 resources budget • RMIT goes down • Flinders, ANU and La Trobe go up
Sensitivity analysis • RMIT, ANU, La Trobe are the most sensitive to changes in formulae • CSU, VUT, UWA, Flinders and Adelaide are also affected. • The smaller (fourth quartile) are unaffected. • The largest jockey for position but do not leave the first quartile. • Can also analyse capacity to pay ie cost compared to resources budget – rejected by AVCC.
