Costs for Pre-moderation and Consent to Assess

17/12/2018

From 1 January 2019, some of the Pre-moderation and Consent to Assess services that we have been absorbing will be cost recovered.

Pre-moderations that are accepted on first submission, and initial Consent to Assess advice, will continue to be done by us at no charge to you. Charges will apply for other work.

This approach is in line with other industry training organisations and will allow us to continue our high level of support in cases of high need. Our intention is to work with you to help you reduce your costs where you can.

Any work that was submitted in 2018 and is still underway in 2019 will also be no charge.

The charges, from 1 January 2019, are:

Pre-moderation of assessment material

  • First submission: no charge
  • Any second and subsequent submissions required to obtain approval: $100 per hour plus GST

Consent to Assess (CTA) applications

  • Advice on preparing a CTA application:  no charge
  • Application administration fee: $75 per hour plus GST (per application)
  • Evaluation of CTA documentation: $150 per hour plus GST
  • Travel and accommodation (if required): reimbursement for actual and reasonable travel and accommodation expenses; any vehicle mileage as per the IRD rate applicable at the time.

  • $300 per day plus GST
  • Travel and accommodation (if required): reimbursement for actual and reasonable travel and accommodation expenses; any vehicle mileage as per the IRD rate applicable at the time.
