FRM01 and R14 Hard Close

Why am I seeing the FRM01 data report?

The FRM01 data report can trigger when a learner’s unique learner number (ULN) has been identified as already achieving against the same qualification with yourselves or your reported subcontractor.


How do I resolve this issue?

Ensure you remove any repeated learning aims from your learner’s data before the R14 hard close.

The ESFA will recover the funding overclaim for any remaining learners with FRM01 at year end.


Why do I need to do this?

You must not knowingly continue to claim funding that is ineligible, breach data quality rules or claim funding where certificates have been lost.

Do not continue to record aims on a learner’s existing funding model with a ‘Funding adjustment for prior learning’ or ‘Other funding adjustment’ of 0 unless you have been specifically instructed to do so by us.


How to view the FRMO1 data report

The FRM01 data report is displayed in the post-16 funding monitoring reports dashboard.

At the bottom of the dashboard, you can see the ‘Known issues’ tab which will show you all your FRM01 known issues.

For further guidance on all FRM reports, accessing and using the dashboard see Financial Assurance: Monitoring post-16 funding for 2021 to 2022

More guidance on What the ESFA will not fund is also available.
