Gerard McElwee is a lecturer in the Business School at Teesside Polytechnic. In this paper he explores some issues in the development of performance indicators in higher education. He argues that the central thrust of PIs in polytechnics is away from in-house ’academic’ control to control by the system more generally and therefore by external management systems.
