Apply for a review of your provisional resourcing roll

Your board can apply for a review of the provisional roll we used to calculate your provisional staffing entitlement for 2022.

You need to demonstrate that our estimate of your resourcing roll is at least 5% at variance with your prediction. We need clear evidence that supports this variance before we’ll consider approving a change. For example, provide us with evidence of actual enrolments for next year.

Application period

The application period for the provisional roll reviews starts from September each year.  The 2022 reviews start from 27 September until the 26 November 2021.
