In the absence of any existing data items, a HEP might choose to complete this field with a sequential number for each contract held by each person. In this case, the first contract for each person would have a value of 1, the second would have a value of 2 and so on. In this case, we would expect the majority of contract records to have a value of 1 in this field.
Once allocated, the value in this field should not change over time. This will facilitate the analysis of patterns of employment in the higher education sector over time.
Entry is restricted to unaccented alphanumeric characters only.
