Utilisation and cost model workbook - to accompany the PBAC Guidelines

The new Utilisation and Cost Model workbook accompanies a PBAC submission and presents, in numerical form, the details of the text-based submission. It supports the evaluation of submissions by the PBAC and its sub-committees. Once accepted by PBAC for listing on the PBS, the workbook will be reviewed by the Department of Health and Aged Care and other relevant agencies. The workbook is designed to be used in accordance with the PBAC Guidelines. 

The structure of the workbook is suitable for the majority of submissions. There may be some situations where the workbook will not be suitable. If it appears that this will be the case, please discuss this with the Estimates Section prior to commencing work on the model.

The workbook is designed to be used with Excel 2010 or later.

The user manual provides a guide to completing the template for different types of financial models.
