  • Enter a Name for the Funding model.
  • Optionally, enter a Code for the Funding model.

    • Use the  button to add a pricing item to the funding model.
    • Use the  button to add a new row for a different date.

      Note: This date will determine when a particular fee should be applied, depending on the Enrolment Start Date or Unit date within a Students Enrolment.

    • The  button will remove the associated row. You will be prompted to confirm the delete for header rows as deleting will also remove all entries under that row.
    • In the Schedule Rule drop down you can specific the schedule calculation rule for each pricing item in funding models. This rule will be applied when the funding model is applied to an enrolment.

      • The available calculation options are:

        1. Fixed date, for the traditional manual entry of an issue date. If the issue date is empty, the pricing item is not scheduled.
        2. Enrolment start date. For contracts, this will use the contract start date.
        3. Enrolment finish date. For contracts, this will use the contract finish date.
        4. Unit start date, when started. For enrolments, this will use the earliest start date of all the units in the enrolment.
        5. Unit finish date when complete. For enrolments, this will use the latest finish date of all the units in the enrolment, when they are all complete.

    Note: For calculation purposes, amounts can be entered to four decimal places. This will be rounded to two decimal places when the final calculation is done in the pricing grid.

  • Optionally, provide a Description for the Funding model.
  • Click Next and then Finish.

The Amount and Concession fields in this area are designed to represent the full amount that is to be charged, and a reduced amount should a concession be required. The calculation rules for these items can be configured via the Pricing Items section of the VETtrak configuration manager.
