Funding and Contracting Advocacy resource hub

February 6, 2019

Concerns with the impact of the Equal Remuneration Order (ERO), and changes to the Indexation Policy are increasing with the cumulative impact of the ERO. We continue to hear that programs and services are increasingly being squeezed, with pressure to deliver high-quality, sustainable services that achieve positive outcomes under old contracts, while also meeting the ERO requirements. WACOSS in partnership with CEWA have commissioned two external studies over recent years, to understand and identify the impacts of the ERO.

CEWA and WACOSS is bringing the sector together to develop strategies to assist with providing evidence to the government of the impact on services, and to discuss how to renegotiate the terms of contracts. We want to consult with our members, and understand what further action we can take to develop a more cohesive, compelling and collective advocacy approach.

The following are links to resources that will be shared with sector at advocacy consultations to help organisations renegotiate their contracts.

The Department of Finance is holding a Costing and Pricing workshop on Thursday 30 May 2019 in Perth.
