Reminder: Health service self-assessment due this month
Health service self-assessments are due via Health Purchasing Victoria’s CPO compliance portal by Thursday 30 May 2019.
The self-assessment submitted by 30 May reflects health services’ compliance status from 1 July until that point in time. Eligible health services are expected to monitor their purchasing spend during the period 30 May to 30 June and inform HPV if their compliance status changes.
HPV has made several process and system improvements to support CPOs in facilitating their health service’s annual self-assessment of compliance to the Health Purchasing Policies and HPV collective agreements, and these are outlined in the instructions on the portal.
