Changes to standard commercial framework for Performance and Management Services (PMS) Scheme
The following changes will apply to all new engagements under the standard commercial framework for the PMS Scheme:
- fewer, revised capped rates due to engagement type harmonisation - a reduction from 91 to 42 capped rates for engagement types 1 to 12
- simplified discount structure based on engagement size.
The changes will apply to new engagements only from 6 January 2020 and will not affect current engagements.
There are no changes to the other elements of the standard commercial framework or suppliers prequalification to engagement types.
