Tribal Group, a leading software and services provider to the Australian higher education sector, has announced that 16 Australian universities and higher education providers will implement Tribal Submissions to meet new higher education statutory reporting requirements.
The new reporting requirement stems from the Australian Government Transforming the Collection of Student Information (TCSI) project, a joint initiative between the Department of Education, Skills and Employment (DESE) and Services Australia. It will transform how student information is collected to build a better solution that benefits both Australian education providers and students.
Tribal Submissions delivers critical student data directly into the Federal Government’s TCSI B2G API suite through an intuitive user interface to reduce risk and streamline submissions. Offering more feature functionality than just an application programming interface, the native cloud-based, multi-tenanted SaaS solution stages and collates real-time data and can be integrated with any Student Management System (SMS).
Tribal, along with its customers, has been working to develop the SMS agnostic submissions solution alongside other higher education and VET providers as a part of the Australian Government TCSI working group since its inception in 2018.
Now live in production and being regularly updated to ensure compliance with Government TCSI reporting requirements, Tribal Submissions will ensure readiness for TCSI go-live for early adoption in December 2020. The solution has the flexibility to adapt to future government requirements and will help providers by fully automating approval and enabling the curation and modification of single or bulk records in an easy-to-use intuitive interface, to optimize TCSI returns.
Peter Croft, Managing Director, APAC Tribal Group, said: “We are very pleased to see the uptake of our TCSI solution by each of our customers in the higher education space, including providers that use Callista and SITS:Vision Student Management Systems.
“This is a significant milestone for Tribal globally and is the first core Student Management System Module to be deployed on our next-generation platform, Tribal Edge. It’s a testament to the solution that our product and development teams have built, that our entire higher education customer base has adopted Tribal Submissions as their TCSI Solution.
“It’s modular by design and can work with any student information system, creates genuine efficiencies and will reduce ongoing TCSI compliance costs for tertiary education providers, is adaptable and agile and provides much more functionality than an API. We look forward to working with all these institutions throughout readiness, implementation and testing phases.”
Tribal is supporting early adopters with a production ready TCSI solution in December 2020 with all institutions listed due to go live in 2021 as per TCSI timeframes: Avondale University College, Batchelor Institute, Charles Darwin University, Deakin University, Edith Cowan University,
Monash University, Murdoch University, University of Canberra, University of New England, The University of Sydney, The University of Western Australia, Western Sydney University and
