Here are the important dates and information to note for this week 3rd August 2018.
10 August 2018 – Closure of the 2017/18 ECCE programme
This year’s ECCE programme which ended in June, will be closed on PIP on this date.
FOR YOUR INFORMATION:
Higher Capitation applications September 2018
A notice has gone up on PIP to say that all higher capitation applications will be processed by Pobal this year through an online application system.
Pobal hope that this will make the process easier and will allow for changes during the year. A form and guide will go up on PIP in September.
We would ask services who have uploaded their fee policies to check their status on PIP. For those in draft they need to be completed and submitted, and those queried please amend and resubmit.
We have to approve fees lists and will not be able to respond quickly enough if everyone waits until the last week in August to submit them.
If you can do them now, you will have them checked and approved in plenty of time and won’t be putting yourselves under pressure in late August/early September.
For services who still have to commence your Fees list on PIP please familiarise yourself with the “How to Guide” which is up on PIP as there are some changes for 2018.
If you need any assistance please contact us.
