HPV extends compliance reporting deadlines to the end of 2020
In light of public hospitals’ focus on responding to the COVID-19 pandemic, HPV has extended the deadline for health services to submit their compliance reporting to the end of the year.
Health services will have until 31 December 2020 to complete their self-assessment form and triennial audit against HPV’s Purchasing Policies.
This deferral allows health services to continue to prioritise the evolving pandemic and put aside the need to consider compliance reporting.
However, health services with capacity and who wish to can progress and submit their self-assessment or audit report through the normal channels before the December deadline.
Health services who choose to continue with their submission should note that the self-assessment form requires the preparer and approver to be different people to support fraud and corruption controls and promote good probity practice.
