Casual staff actuals packet (PIR) 2021

Version Details


The casual staff actuals packet is used to report data on staffing resources engaged on a contract basis by a provider throughout the year. Data for academic casual staff actuals is collected at the organisational unit level.


Higher Education providers are required to report a casual staff actuals packet for each organisational unit that engaged people on a casual work contract basis at any point during the prior calendar year. Data is to be reported in relation to academic casual staff whose work duties related either solely to higher education or to both higher education and vocational education and training, with the full‑time equivalence expended in relation to work undertaken in both types of work sector being reported.

Data is not to be reported for staff:

  • who were members of staff appointed for a limited term with a full-time or fractional full‑time work contract
  • whose duties relate solely to vocational education and training, or
  • in any independent operation which is not a controlled entity.

Reporting deadlines

The casual staff actuals for the whole of calendar year 2021 must be reported in August 2022.
