Reimbursement for the following items may be supported through existing local funding rather than the AHP+PDRP. The AHP+PDRP will not approve these items as the expenditure associated with them is difficult to administer efficiently via the AHP+ PDRP or has been deemed the responsibility of departments or employees:
incidental travel expenses including travel insurance, petrol mileage, meals
text books and professional or trade journals
coaching or mentoring activities.
Refer to SA Health's Travel and FBT Policy Directive for more information on Fringe Benefit Tax (FBT) implications for travel.
1 - Eligible post graduate courses are those that do not have Commonwealth supported places. Students in Commonwealth supported places must pay Student Contribution
2 - Fees will not be reimbursed regardless of whether they are paid up-front or via HECS HELP.
When a manager or discipline group determines a professional development session that is necessary and/or highly sought after, and will benefit a number of staff , they are able to make a Group Application. This can include potential participants from other Allied Health and Scientific Departments and/or professions.
Where the cost of the activity is greater than $200 per head then this amount will be deducted from the employees individual allocation. Any shortfall in funding due to an employee exhausting their individual allocation amount will need to be picked up by the Local Health Network or Statewide Service.
