|Applicable to||England Northern Ireland Scotland Wales|
All contract activity records
Each contract must have at least one activity, an associated HESA cost centre and a proportion (Activity.ACTSOC, Activity.CCENTRE and Activity.CCPROP). The activity associated with a contract defines the role of the staff member and the HESA cost centre indicates where that activity takes place within the higher education provider (HEP). Further information on Coding activities and HESA cost centres is available under the 'Further guidance' section of the manual.
Where the contract only has one activity associated with it 100 should be returned.
Staff whose activity has moved from one HESA cost centre to another within the reporting period should be reported within each relevant HESA cost centre according to the time spent in each HESA cost centre.
The length of this field is a maximum of 5 characters, however the move to XML enables data to be returned with or without leading zeros or the decimal place, e.g. '005.0', '5.0' or '5' are equally acceptable. Where a value is returned with decimal places, it must be rounded to the nearest 0.1 in order to conform to the five character limit.
