    –          Organisation details certification
    –          Service details certification
    Phase 2 will be available from Monday 11th June and will entail:
    –          Re-contracting
    –          Fees lists
    –          Service Calendars
    How to guides will be posted on the PIP portal in the coming days.
    Note: For Services who still wish to activate a 2017/18 contract:
    From Monday 28th May, services will have to complete the 2018/19 Readiness tasks in order to activate any contract.  If you wish to activate a 2017/18 contract using your current PAU, you must do sobefore 3pm on Thursday 24th May.   After this date you will have to certify your 2018/19 PAU before you can activate any contract.
    If you are a new organisation and wish to participate in the DCYA childcare funding programmes you must contact your local City/County Childcare Committee for an application form for the programme you wish to participate in.
