​​​​Variations to agreements

The VET Pre-qualified Supplier Agreement may not be varied except by agreement in writing signed by the pre-qualified supplier (PQS) and the department.

PQS may be required to supply details of delivery history and industry referees to verify student outcomes and industry support for qualifications in new industry areas.

All variations must be applied for online through the Variations Online (VOL) function that is part of the department's Purchasing Online (POL) system.​​

Variations can include but are not limited to adding and removing qualifications or skill sets, and publishing and un-publishing on the department's website. It is the responsibility of the PQS to ensure that their Delivery Schedule and information published on the Queensland Training Information Service is correct and up-to-date.

​The department does not automatically update a PQS schedule when a qualification is superseded or the PQS is no longer registered for a qualification.

A PQS can only commence training in a new qualification or skill set as at the date approved by the department. Variations will not be backdated.
