Managing payment for goods delivered and services rendered

Finance Services has undertaken a comprehensive review of the Accounts Receivable (Revenue Services) function with the aim of streamlining end-to-end processes and improving service outcomes across the portfolio. Ensuring that income generated from goods or services provided by the University is paid for by its customers in a timely manner is a core function of the Revenue Services team. For the benefit of the University's cash position as a whole, it is imperative that departments, faculties and divisions work together with the team to reduce the number and duration of overdue, unpaid sales invoices in circulation and the incidence of doubtful debts leading to the write-off of otherwise expected revenue.

A Debt Collection Framework has been developed to articulate specific measures and procedures to help manage outstanding monies owing from commercial customers (trade debtors) across the University.

Staff mental health training programs

Staff Mental Health First Aid (MHFA) programs have resumed through online delivery and are now open for registration. The Blended Online MHFA Community course has been adapted from the two day Standard MHFA course and is an equivalent qualification that leads to accreditation as a MHFAider.

The course has two parts, a 5-7 hours e-learning component, delivered by MHFA Aus that can be completed at any time prior to the second component which comprises two CAPS run group sessions of 2.5 hours each.

Upcoming dates for the CAPS group sessions are:
8 and 15 September, 7 and 14 October, 5, 12, 16 and 23 November
