Processing of contracts Department of Children and Youth Affairs (DCYA) childcare funding programmes for 2017 – 2018 will begin in the afternoon of Friday 26th May.
The process this year is similar to that of last year where each service must certify a PAU, service details and organisation details and must activate a contract for the programme in which they wish to participate.
For 2017 – 2018 service providers must complete the following three steps before the contracts can be activated:
Ø PAU Certification
Ø Organisation details certification
Ø Service details certification
The ‘how to guide’ for online recertification and recontracting and ‘how to video’ are available on the PIP Portal.
A PAU ‘frequently asked questions’ guide for service providers is also available.
All services currently in contract with a DCYA childcare funding programme will be set up with a CCSP contract on PIP for 2017 – 2018.
The CCSP contract must be activated if you wish to participate in any of the following schemes:
– CCS Plus
– CCS Resettlement, relocation and transition and,
– CCS Universal
If you are a new service provider 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.
