ESOL009: TEO to repay over-funding


If the TEO receives funding from the ILN – ESOL Fund that is greater than it should have been, or that the TEO was not entitled to receive, the TEO must treat the amount of the over-funding as a debt due to the Crown that:

a)  is repayable on demand; and

b)  may be set-off against all or any funding, or any sum of money payable by the TEC to the TEO.

Funding that is greater than it should have been

For the purposes of this condition, the TEC will determine whether a TEO received funding that was greater than it should have been by:

a)  multiplying the number of places specified in the TEO's Investment Plan by 200 (the average number of hours required per learner); and

b)  subtracting the total number of hours delivered (based on actual attendance) in the calendar year from the figure in (a).

For example:

(Places in Investment Plan x 200 hours) - total hours delivered = under/over delivery (recoverable amount where there is under delivery (if there is under deliver, the TEO was over-funded and the TEC may recover the funding provided to the TEO for the hours that were not delivered)).
