What are Funding Contracts?

Funding Contract allows you to connect additional funding to an enrolment. Whether this is from a state funding source or private agreement, funding contract allows you to create a default payer and payment that will be used to fund all or part of an enrolment. It allows you to easily locate a report on one or more funding contract types to your funding agency.

Funding contracts encompass state funding sources linked to Smart and Skilled or CSO, but also allows you to set up custom funding contracts. The funding contract can also be linked to the AVEMTISS Reporting type required for that contract.

onCourse has created default templates for the State based funding contracts, and integrated them with your AVETMISS reporting options. On higher level subscriptions, you are able to create custom funding contracts for any source of funding that supports the student enrolment, such as grants, department co-payment or even private contracts with large organisation.

The Funding contract drop down on the class will only let you select from active contracts.

If you tick 'Assign the same value to the VET Fields' when you duplicate a class, the funding contract will be duplicated to the new class.

Changing the Funding Contract on a class will not changing the Funding Contract applied to any enrolments already processed. It will only apply to enrolments created after the change is made.
