Data verification commences on 15 April. It is the last stage in finalising the reporting requirements and confirms the accuracy of data reported to HEIMS. For more information view our Verification user guide. Be prepared for formal verification. You don't have to wait. You can check your data now using HEIMS data view reports. Get started and be organised. Do yourself a favour and don't leave verifying your reports until the last week. Our Quality Assurance and Data Verification page is full of helpful information to guide you through the verification process.

HITS goes live

Now that you have submitted your final 2012 data it's the perfect time to back up your HEPCAT database. For help with this process go to our HEPCAT user guide. The department cannot replace your database if it is lost, deleted or corrupted. Your encryption key must be securely stored at all times. It may not be copied or used by unauthorised personnel. Losing or compromising your encryption key can have a number of serious impacts. In our last eNews we told you about the new HELP IT system (HITS) which will replace the current VET IT system (VITS) from late May 2013. To keep up to date contact the department and request the latest newsletter.
