Your RTO must notify ASQA if you start or leave a third-party agreement. The written agreement is signed by each contracting party and the RTO maintains an updated record of all agreements concluded by the RTO. This procedure provides a framework for the implementation of vocational training and evaluations by third parties in the event that the university is unable to carry out training and evaluation through its existing structures. Internal resources should always be considered first, followed by the direct employment of meeting staff. Third-party delivery is an alternative in cases where the above options are not possible. A number of factors must be taken into account before a supply agreement can be implemented by third parties for the provision of training and evaluations. (2) To the AAT. The standards for RTOs require RTOs to notify ASQA within 30 days of entering into an agency agreement with a third party. If you request that your agency contract be approved by ASQA and it is refused, you can appeal this decision through the AAT. You can then challenge the validity of the general line at the AAT. It should be carefully completed and filed where the proposed third party is located: for whatever reason, however, this position excludes third parties who are also, by chance, RTTs. (1) Filing a complaint through the internal channels of the ASQA.

Within 14 days of the conclusion/rescission of an agreement to conclude or terminate an agreement (regardless of the circumstances), notify Quality Services within 14 days (to allow notification to regulators within the required time frame). Any agreement reached by third parties must include the conditions for the university to immediately terminate an agreement with a relevant subcontracting RTO if the subcontract financing contract for RTO`s professional promotion is suspended or terminated. The terms of the agreement must also provide that one in three people, if they wish, is assisted by a supervisory body during the university`s examination or audit. If the third party answered in the affirmative on one of the points 2, 3 or 4 above, the proposal should not be pursued. Under the vocational training funding contract, the university cannot enter into a contract with a person or organization whose funding contract for vocational training has been terminated or that a regulatory decision or other restriction has been made for performance reasons. The right to enter into a third-party agreement is a common right that all RTOs have. This right is taken into account by the NVR Act and the RTO standards. The importance of third parties is defined in RTO standards as: any party that provides services on behalf of the RTO. The important words here are «any party» that clearly shows that other SVOs are not excluded from this definition. This procedure applies to all proposed schemes under which the university assigns a third party to provide training and/or evaluation services (including VETDSS programmes). If the third party responded to point 5, the proposal should not be followed up without the agreement of the pro-vice-chancellor (VET) and the International Committee for Education.
