7. Update and confirm details

Before a submission can be started, the report contact must ensure that the contact and organisation details are up to date. In the Portal they can review the information on record by clicking on the ‘Organisation’ tab from the portal homepage. Raise a support request for any information that cannot change manually.

On this page a report contact can:

  • Add or remove a CEO or Department/Agency head or equivalent
  • Assign roles to contact records (e.g. reporting contact, or CEO)
  • Update basic information in the organisation or contact records

It is the responsibility of the employer to keep their records and contact information up to date. We recommend that all communication is put under one business email in the event it changes, or the person leaves their employment.

7.1 Confirm details to start a submission

The first step in completing a report is to confirm the details for the submission.

The organisation and contact details must be kept up-to-date and reflect the way in which data is being reported. The ABNs and industry information confirmed must be reflected in the data being submitted.

  • For example – if ABN 12345678910 is confirmed for a submission, the ABN must be used in the uploaded files.

7.2 What is an ANZSIC industry code?

The Australia and New Zealand Standard Industrial Classification (ANZSIC) system classifies entities based on their main business activity and is used to collect and analyse data across industries. Employers reporting to WGEA must report at least one industry code for each legal entity included in their submission.

For the Public Sector Reporting Program, most participants will use the industry class 7510 – Central Government Administration.
