Funding sources

A Funding Source represents the method by which an enrolment fee is paid; either from a government funding pool or the client paying a fee for the service. The state governments for ACT, NT, Qld, SA, Tas and Vic have a set of standard, government-recognised funding sources for use, many of which are available in VETtrak by default. If there are any funding sources that you need that are not included by default, you can create a corresponding Funding Source in VETtrak at your convenience.

NOTE: NSW - The state funding sources in NSW are called Course Site IDs and are issued to the RTO by the NSW government. When creating a new funding source, Course Site ID goes into the Code field.

NOTE: WA - The state funding sources in WA are called Contracted Programme of Study (CPS) numbers are are issued to the RTO by the WA government. When creating a new funding source, the CPS number goes into the Code field.

Open the Configuration Manager by choosing Manage > Configuration from the menus.


The Configuration Manager displays an alphabetically ordered explorer tree.

 

Adding a new Funding source

You can either right-click Funding sources and choose Add new funding source:

You can also expand Funding sources, right-click the appropriate state and choose Add new funding source.

This will open the Funding Source Wizard:

  • Select a State for the funding source. This will be preselected if you chose to add the new source by right-clicking a state previously.
  • Select the National funding source, if applicable.

    Available National Funding Sources (As per the NCVER specifications) include:

    11  Commonwealth and State general purpose recurrent
    13  Commonwealth specific funding program
    15  State specific funding program
    20  Domestic client - other revenue
    30  International client - other revenue
    97  PPP - existing worker
    98  PPP - job seeker
    80  Revenue earned from another registered training organisation
  • Enter a Code for the funding source. This is the Course Site ID for NSW, or the CPS Number for WA. This code is included in the AVETMISS and WA Enrolment Export files to identify the method by which the enrolment fee is paid.
  • Enter a Name for the funding source. This is not reported, and is instead used to identify the Funding source at the time of selection.
  • This funding source is not active indicates if the funding source should be archived. If enabled, the funding source will be added/moved to the Archived funding sources branch for the state.
  • This funding source requires a purchasing contract ensures that a purchasing contract must be entered when this funding source is selected for an enrolment.
  • Optionally provide a Description for the funding source.
