Steveh, it doesn’t make any sense to me either as to why they are doing this now, especially so close to a Return where all providers have to return data. I’m just glad that I uploaded my ILR to the Hub and the OLDC before this update.
I’m currently downloading the 14/15 component set and it’s taking an age for this to run.
For those who do not know how to get the 14/15 component set you need to select SKILLS FUNDING AGENCY (all in upper case) as the provider. It would have been great if the Agency informed us all of this; just another example of fabulous communication from The Agency
To be unfair, those of us who installed FIS 8 months ago and for whom it’s worked perfectly well under our UKPRN since then have a decent reason for shouting when suddenly it doesn’t work without having to go delving about in Known Issues lists…
If you are due to make a return, please ensure that you submit files to both the Hub and to the online data collection (OLDC) system. If we encounter issues with the Hub, we will use the last file that you have submitted to either system as the basis on which to make full-year reconciliations.
