What is covered?

  • Protection is subject to certain terms, exclusions, conditions and limitations which can be viewed in the Policy Wording and Product Disclosure Statement (PDS).

All Volunteers of the Ƶapp must complete a Volunteer Acknowledgement with the event coordinator and/or supervisor. These forms are then kept within the Faculty/Department. In the event of a claim the Volunteer will need to provide a copy of this form with their claim to show that the Volunteer was authorised.

We recommend that Faculties/Departments keep a record of the number of volunteers that work on their behalf as it is important to declare this to Financial Services annually during the insurance renewal process.

What is the difference between volunteer work and work experience?

Volunteer work is when a member of the community offers their services to the Ƶapp without being paid. Volunteers do not include UOW students on work experience placement at host organisations.

Work Experience is when an enrolled UOW student wishes to partake in unpaid work that is relevant to their studies at a host organisation outside the Ƶapp.

The Ƶapp of Ƶapp uses The to improve onboarding of suppliers, whilst also improving process to manage potential fraud.

The Eftsure software solution assists in identifying errors, fraud, and scam attempts before releasing funds by independently verifying all required supplier details making currently manual processes more efficient and secure.

What does this mean for our suppliers?

We envisage this change to be of minimum disruption to our suppliers. UOW Finance staff will initiate the invitation email to suppliers for information to be added to the Eftsure system. This will include bank details, ABN, trading name/s, GST registration, Modern Slavery compliance and company contact information.

Details will be added to the New Supplier Registration information within Eftsure. Suppliers will be contacted by Eftsure team for verification purposes.

Following verification, UOW will receive a confirmation email from Eftsure confirming the supplier as verified. The Eftsure system includes a continuous verification of supplier details.

Suppliers will be able to change their own details in the system by contacting UOW Finance. The supplier is responsible for notifying Eftsure of changes ensuring payments for services rendered can be continued without disruption.

Eftsure contact details will be available to our suppliers.
