UIP data collection: go-live 31 March
The first electronic data submission under the new Unfunded International Providers (UIP) data collection system is due from UIPs on Thursday 31 March 2016.
There is a temporary exemption from the new requirements for providers that offer only English language training, but any UIP that provides English language training only may still use the UIP data collection system to return data if they wish to do so.
The new system is an outcome of the recent change to Rule 5.1.3 of the Private Training Establishment Registration Rules 2013, making the requirement to submit information to the Ministry of Education using a new automated data system a condition of PTE registration.
For more information about the data and how to submit it, follow these links:
UIP Data Collection – SMS Specification document (available on the STEO website) explains which providers are required to submit data and how the data must be submitted.
Services for Tertiary Organisations (STEO) website provides more information about the data collection project.
If you have any questions, please email UIP.Datacollection@education.govt.nz.
