Comments:Help on this term

Desirable components of a unique agency identifier include Australian State/Territory identifier, Establishment sector, and Agency number.

Currently, there is no uniform method throughout community services for the identification of agencies. However, adoption of consistent practices for allocating unique agency identifiers has the potential to enhance data comparability and utility.

It is important to note that if agencies are to communicate confidentially between one another, a unique agency identity needs to be established. The use of this metadata item will lead to reduced duplication in reporting client activity and will enable linkage of services to one episode of care or service event.

Data element attributes

Collection and usage attributes

Guide for use:Help on this term

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

This identifier must be included as part of the Service type outlet identifier.

Collection methods:Help on this termThe identifier should not identify the organisation by name. The identifier is assigned to the NDA funded agency by the state/territory department responsible for administering the NDA.
Comments:Help on this term

This data element is required to facilitate data editing, and linkage between funding departments and funded agencies. Funded agency ID needs to be identified separately from the service type outlet ID to allow organisations running more than one service type outlet to separately identify information on service users accessing each service type.
