The Data Exchange – how we know what works

What is the Data Exchange (DEX)?

DEX is the reporting platform used in the TEI program. It is a web-based platform hosted by the Department of Social Services.

DEX has the flexibility to capture information across the entire TEI continuum, helping ensure service delivery information and client outcomes are reported in a consistent way. All TEI services report data through DEX.
