Errors and Warnings (Data Validation Failures)

When a record fails a data validation check, we will report it to you as a Data Validation Failure (DVF).

Therre are two types of DVFs:

  • Errors occur when data provided in an interface file is wrong.
  • Warnings occur when data provided in an interface file could be wrong, so we need you to check it.

What you need to do

Errors and Warnings need to be reviewed and any corrections submitted to the Scheme Administrator ahead of your next monthly payroll cycle in the following ways:

  • Standard and Manual interface users should submit their corrections by completing and returning the new Data Validation Report.
  • Full interface users should submit their corrections using the Manual interface.

Regardless of the interface type used, you need to ensure that any data corrections or confirmations returned to the Scheme Administrator are also reflected in your source payroll data.

This will prevent Errors and Warnings being repeated in subsequent interface files.
