Collection and usage attributes

Guide for use:

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:The 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:

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.
