Data Capture Tool (DCT) Tips

The purpose of the DCT is to provide employers with a web-based application that allows accurate importing of payroll data into Penfax.

Users can import employee data or enter the data using DCT on-line screens.

The DCT will run first level validation edits to ensure that data fields satisfy predetermined validation rules and that valid characters are present within those fields. Once the data has been passed to Penfax, additional edits will be performed by Penfax to ensure that the data posts and that the pension business rules are applied (e.g. eligibility rules).

The following information is intended to provide you, the Crown Secure Portal User, with useful tips on the use of the DCT to ensure that the proper data is provided in the DCT import file or the DCT on-line transactions.
