The new 2014-15 health funding contract is close to being finalised.
In an update on its website, NSW Health said funded NGOs can expect to receive the new contract in April 2014. The contract will include new terms and conditions, including quarterly performance reports. The contract has been developed in consultation with an NGO Advisory Committee Working Group and Local Health District NGO Coordinators.
NCOSS and the health peaks have not been involved in the contract’s development or had the opportunity to review the draft.
The Ministry said the final draft contract will be sent to the full NGO Advisory Committee prior to its next meeting on 16 April.
