In the financial year 2010/11 the Office for Fair Access (OFFA) baseline budget was £484,000. We have agreed in the course of this year (2011/12) to increase this to £630,000 and are continuing to work with the director to keep this under review to ensure he has access to the resources he needs to fulfil his role in line with the Government's expectations set out in the letter to him on
The Government have committed to strengthen OFFA, as outlined in the Higher Education White Paper “Students at the heart of the system”, so it can provide a more active and energetic challenge and support to universities and colleges. We will work with the next Director on the size and structure of OFFA but will make significantly more resources available, increasing capacity up to around four times its original level.
