Notification sent to TEOs and SMS vendors.
We know most of you have started testing your April Single Data Returns (SDRs). This notification provides you with an update on a change to the 2019 SDR manual along with some handy tips on validating the new iwi codes.
The 2019 SDR manual [PDF, 2.02MB] notes the validations for ‘Fees Free eligible indicator field’ and ‘Total fee for domestic student field’ will produce an error for the April 2019 SDR.
Unfortunately the change from a warning to an error for these fields will not be made until the August 2019 SDR. The validation will remain as a warning for the April 2019 submission. However, please fix as many as possible now before they become errors in the August 2019 SDR.
We are working on updating the SDR manual so that it’s clear it is a warning and not an error for the April 2019 SDR submission.
We apologise for the confusion caused, and the delay in getting this across the line.
You will need to use the new codes for all enrolments, including learners who are cross-year enrolments and were submitted in the December 2018 SDR round.
If you get an error message, please:
If the error persists please contact us on 0800 601 301 or firstname.lastname@example.org
