Preliminary analysis l.jpg
Preliminary Analysis

  • When the unit prices are applied to the major service areas of Accommodation Support, Community Access and Centre-Based Respite, preliminary analysis suggests that:

    • (26)47.3% organisations appear to be overfunded

    • (29)52.7% appear to be underfunded

    • (6)10.9% of the total appear to be close to the price for the services they deliver (i.e. within 2.5% + or -)

Transition l.jpg
Transition

  • How will we transition to UP fairly and efficiently?


Principles of transition l.jpg
Principles of Transition

  • Analysis supports a transition process based on need:

    • Starting with known critical base funding issues

    • Then addressing overfunding over time by level of overfunding

  • Further analysis will place your organisation according to need.


How does that look l.jpg
How does that look?

  • Underfunded organisations – additional funding from 1 January 2012 over 3 years, indexed at 2.25%

  • Overfunded by ↓5% - base funding will reduce from 1/1/12

  • Overfunded by 5%-10% - base funding will reduce between 1/1/12 and 30/6/13

  • Overfunded by 10%-15% - base funding will reduce between 1/1/12 and 30/6/14

  • Overfunded by more than 15% - transition period will be individually negotiated
