Collection and usage attributes

Guide for use:

This data element is reported by funding departments in relation to all service type outlets.

The Service type outlet identifier (CSTDA) must include information to identify both the service type outlet and its funded agency - thus it is unique within the jurisdiction, and incorporates the Funded agency identifier (CSTDA).

The funding department allocates a unique Service type outlet identifier (CSTDA) to each separate service type outlet. 

Collection methods:

The identifier can be numeric or alphanumeric but should not identify the service type outlet by name.

The ID number must include information to identify both the service type outlet and its funded agency-thus it is unique within the jurisdiction. This means that the service type outlet ID is generally longer than the funded agency ID.

Comments:

Service type outlets deliver a particular CSTDA service type at or from a discrete location. A unique identification system for service type outlets enables information to be provided about each different service type outlet under the CSTDA. Identifying each service type outlet also enables information to be presented about the number of service users accessing each service type. This information can then be used for future service planning at the state/territory level.
