This field records the start date of a person's governor status.

For C17025 only, providers are only able to return then governor entity once. If a governor has finished an existing governor contract in the 2017/18 reporting year, and commences a new one in the same year, providers will record the start date of the previous governor contract. In this case there will be no end date for the governor status, unless the governor ends the subsequent contract. An expected end date is still required.

The format for the fields on the Governor entity (Governor.STARTGOV, Governor.EXPENDGOV, Governor.ENDGOV) is YYYY-MM-DD.
