SAICP are set to meet with ACS mid-November 2018 to enter into preliminary discussions regarding fee levels for 2019/20.
If you wish to make any comments for consideration by the Steering Group representatives who will be leading the negotiations please email email@example.com.
ACS FEES 2018/19
SAICP has received the uplift documents from ACS which you will all be receiving from contracts at Suffolk County Council for the funding for the financial year 2018/19, which we are now sending on to you all (copy attached below).
Once more, we have been in discussions with ACS over the financial situation and appreciate that the figures do not reflect our required fees.
We rejected their first offer and asked for an extra million which they have given us, albeit from the extra money announced by central government last week. We seem to limping from crisis to crisis with the government stumping up extra cash at the last minute which does not help anyone.
Also attached are the new contracts which ACS says have been reduced. SAICP has had no input to the contract changes. The letter states that you will be visited by your contracts managers so if there are any issues then please take it up with them, but if you could copy in Moira (firstname.lastname@example.org) to any changes you would like to see, it will give us an insight to how the new contracts have been received.
These are still difficult times. We appreciate that all our members are independent businesses who have to make commercial decisions and we have endeavoured to achieve the best deal possible.
