If you have any queries with the requirements for the C11041 Campus Information collection please contact Institutional Liaison at firstname.lastname@example.org.
In advance of the data collection HESA releases the Campus information preparation guide. This guide provides further guidance of the requirements for the collection year, with particular reference to any areas HESA's Statutory Customers wish institutions to pay particular attention to during coding and submission.
Notification of the publication of this preparation guide will be sent to both Campus record contacts and the Admin-HESA JISC mailgroup. If you would like to join Admin-HESA please contact Institutional Liaison.
The C11041 collection database opens on the Submit site.
For a user guide for the submission of C11041 Campus Information System data please visit Campus information system (Cyy041).
Access and PIN codes for this system will be distributed to Campus information contacts when the system opens.
HESA monitors all transactions on the system to ensure institutions are progressing and not encountering issues. If you require assistance with the submission process, please contact Institutional Liaison.
Institutions are required to check the details submitted in the prior year and confirm whether they remain accurate. Where applicable new campus information should be added. Data submission is through a webform. Institutions are required to send data that has passed this insert-stage to HESA by 1 June 2012. Insert-stage business validation rules are listed within C11041 Campus information field description.Data which fails validation will not be considered to have been returned to the Agency.
Institutions are advised to process a COMMIT transaction by 8 June 2012. A summary of campus information will be displayed on screen for confirmation.
Institutions can contact Institutional Liaison throughout this period to request their data is decommitted in order to make adjustments to the submission. The data quality checking period is an iterative process during which institutions may need to submit, commit, review and decommit their data several times to ensure the final submission is credible.
During this period Data Analysts at HESA will also examine data committed by all institutions. If any anomalies are found queries will be raised through the Minerva DQ database. Nevertheless institutions are in a better position to recognise more detailed anomalies within their data, using local knowledge of the intricacies of their own institution. As a consequence institutions are required to either resubmit their data to amend these anomalies, or provide an explanation through Minerva as to why these apparent anomalies are genuine.
Upon satisfactory completion of this process data will be set to credible.
In order to meet obligations for hand-over of data to its customers, HESA needs to receive all data files by 22 June 2012.
As part of the data quality assurance procedures, HESA requires the return to be signed-off by the head or acting head of your institution. This verification offers both the institutions and HESA assurances regarding onward use of the data. Sign-off completes the data collection process.
||On the system your instituton's data will be set to credible and a new icon will be made available from where the sign-off form can be downloaded and completed. Once completed, the form should be posted back to HESA at the address in the bar below. Please note that the transaction number on the sign-off form must correspond to that of the data being signed-off|
Note: Institutions should download and keep copies of all relevant reports that they are likely to need during the year, as it will be necessary to restrict access to the site after the submission deadline.
The C11041 Campus Information Collection data is also used as metadata for both the C11051 Student record and the C11025 Staff record in order to link students and staff to the campus at which they are located.
