2015 August SDR is due 5pm 21 August 2015

19 August 2015

Your 2015 August Single Data Return (SDR) is due 5pm, 21 August 2015. Your Workforce Staffing Return is also due 5pm, 21 August 2015. Thank you if you have already submitted these.

Why timely, accurate and complete SDR submissions are necessary

We use the SDR data you submit to:

  • monitor performance
  • forecast delivery to the end of the year
  • support funding decisions and
  • report on tertiary education achievement.

Your enrolment data will determine payments relating to SAC under-25, fees-free and YG exceptional travel funding.

The release of your scheduled payment is dependent on your timely, accurate and complete SDR submission.  Your scheduled payment(s) may be delayed if your SDR is submitted late or is inaccurate or incomplete. 

Extension and resubmission requests

We won’t consider requests for extensions. If you need to resubmit your August SDR after 21 August, you must first seek our approval.
