WLN009: TEO to repay excess funding

Type:
Condition

If the TEO receives WLN funding that is greater than it should have been, or that it 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 was greater than it should have been - TEOs (other than employers)

Unless the TEO is an employer as defined in Condition WLN002, the TEC will determine whether the 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 40 (the average rate 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 40 hours) – total hours delivered = under/over delivery (recoverable amount where there is under delivery).

Funding that was greater than it should have been – employers

If the TEO is an employer as defined in Condition WLN002, the TEC will determine whether the TEO has received funding that was greater than it should have by analysing the information provided to the TEC in the TEO's final report.

The TEC will develop the details of its funding recovery through discussions with each TEO that is an employer.
