General Validation ConQuest System Checks - The information held on Conquest for the related TOG Contact is compared with the information provided on the claim form. SPA Management Criteria - The information on the claim form is compared to UK-Link. UK-Link Checks - Additional information is obtained from UK-Link for the MPRN provided on the claim form. This is used when raising the invoice. Supporting Evidence – This is to check that the evidence provided to support the claim is adequate.
The main classifications of the rejections are listed below: A. A valid TOG Contact does not exist on Conquest. E.g. Shipper states “Not Pursuing” on corresponding TOG Contact. Shipper does not provide kWhs or ToG period on Corresponding TOG Contact. No theft details have been provided on the Conquest TOG Contact. B. Information/eviden ce provided is not sufficient. E.g. Mandatory information or evidence has not been provided. C. Information/eviden ce provided does not concur with xoserve systems. E.g. Witness Statement claims meter was removed but UK-Link shows meter still in situ. Information provided on the Conquest TOG Contact does not match that provided on the claim. D. Information/eviden ce provided suggests payments have been completed or are being made. E.g. Witness Statement claims payments have been completed. A credit meter has been subsequently fitted. Letter to End User states that supply would not be reinstated until payments were made, and supply is Live. E. Information/eviden ce provided invalidates claim. E.g. Witness Statement states “Not Reported to the police” Evidence suggests that end user has not been issued with an invoice. F. Claim has been previously submitted. E.g. A previous claim has been submitted for this instance of theft. G. Incorrect claim type has been submitted. E.g. Claim 3 has been submitted when Claim 2 should have been submitted. H. Claim is for period outside Shipper ownership. E.g. Claim submitted is for a period which is entirely or partially for a period when the site was not supplied by the shipper. Rejection Reasons
Questions on the Validation of the Proposed Scheme (MOD231) Will evidence be submitted to support the costs incurred? Will xoserve be required to carry out any additional validation?
