Service Profile Issue and Core Funding May Review and Confirm

Dear Early Learning and Care and School Age Childcare Providers, 

Service Profile Issue and Core Funding May Review and Confirm

Service Profile Issue – Rate of Pay Per Hour

An issue on the Rate of Pay Per Hour field in the Service Profile has been identified. Services may be receiving a confirmation message advising a rate of pay entered is lower than the Employment Regulation Order (ERO) rate for a staff type, in cases where the rate of pay entered is in line with the ERO rate. The issue is currently under investigation and will be rectified as soon as possible.

To note, this issue does not prevent a Service from updating and submitting their Service Profile. Servicesshould continue to enter the correct rate of pay per hour, for each staff member. 

For any queries on the Employment Regulation Order rates, please refer to the following link: click here.

Review and Confirm 

This is a reminder that the May Review and Confirm window for the 2023/2024 programme call is now open until 17 May.

This process enables Core Funding payments to continue, by facilitating Partner Services to review their most recent Service Profile and Core Funding application information and either confirm that no changes have occurred or submit an application change.  


Preparing for Review and Confirm 

Prior to completing the May Review and Confirm window the below is required:

  • Partner Services must ensure that all data captured in their Service Profile in relation to their Service Level, Facility, Rooms, Sessions and Staff is up to date prior to completing the Review and Confirm window.
  • Your Core Funding Application Module must be at status “Approved”.  If your application is at “Referred back”, you must address the reason for refer back and then complete the review and confirm process. 

To support services in completing their Review & Confirm form, additional resources are available on the Core Funding Documents page on the Early Years Hive.  

Core Funding Payments

After the review and confirm window is closed, Core Funding payments will only continue to be processed as per the payment schedule on the Early Years Hive provided your May Review and Confirm is at an approved status.
