    Good afternoon,
    has anyone else noticed that the software supplier ID is blank on the period end apps monthly payment report for all functional skills aims within an apprenticeship?

    just noticed that i have 800+ mismatches between the payment report and MIS system and it’s down to these being missing, is this just 1 file or is everyone the same?

    Hi Ben,

    I also noticed this and reported it to the service desk and got the following reply…

    Hi Matthew

    Thank you for contacting the Service Desk

    The data team are currently reviewing the reports to ensure they are as accurate as possible. I can confirm that the Software supplier ID field would not affect funding and is being looked into for the R05 reports.

    Apologies for the inconvenience caused.

    Kind regards
    Service Desk

    That is an appalling response from the ESFA. They seem to have no appreciation of the problems they cause. Whilst they assure that the money is correct, not being able to check and confirm this is of zero interest to them.

    Rant over, but totally unacceptable – again!
