End of Financial Year Deadlines

Each year the Department of Health (DoH Tas) closes its finance system for a period of two to three weeks from mid-June for end of financial year processing. During this time TAZREACH is unable to process any claims for payment until the system reopens in July.

As the current financial year is coming to a close it is important to take note of a few deadlines:

18th June 2020 - Please ensure all outstanding claims up until this date are submitted by this date for processing and payment before the end of June.

17th July 2020 - ALL outstanding claims for the 2019-2020 financial year will need to be submitted by this date to ensure payment.

Once our final reports have been finalised for the Australian Government, TAZREACH cannot guarantee that claims received after this date will be processed as un-used funding is required to be reallocated.

TAZREACH Annual Review

The TAZREACH office would like to thank all our providers and host sites for your involvement in the annual review this year.

If you have not yet had an opportunity to provide TAZREACH with feedback about how outreach services have progressed throughout the last year, please do so at your earliest convenience. Please keep in mind however that any feedback received from now may not be able to be used for planning purposes as our work plans for 2020-21 are in the process of being finalised.

Funding for 2020-21 & Service Agreements

TAZREACH has not yet received new agreements for most of our outreach programs for funding from 1 July 2020, however we have received confirmation from the Australian Government that the Tasmanian Government Department of Health should receive these prior to 1 July 2020.

At this stage we cannot provide a timeframe as to when you will receive your new service agreements, but as discussed during the annual reviews we will be in touch as soon as possible to confirm visits and timeframes for when you will receive your new agreements.
