A discussion appear on procuring new family contract is out and can be downloaded here.
More to follow – have some other urgent things to do before reading – however headline proposal is;

“we intend to award contracts through an non-competitive tender process”

I am “live tweeting” my reading of this. You might want to follow me – just click on the button on the side bar.
To calm initial nerves however; there is NO threat to your Family contract in these arrangements and the only significant change is a proposed Supervisor ratio of 1.3 or 4, down from 1:6. we doubt that this will cause much difficulty.
The procurement round will open, for 4-weeks, in September and the contracts commence in 2012. The only other key date is that you will have to have had an external SQM Audit by August 2012.
Please ring Simon if you require further information.
No sleep ’till October.
