What happens next?

  1. The FLP assessment panel will consider your Expression of Interest in line with the FLP Guidelines. Your regional office will liaise with you if any issues are identified, or further clarification is required.
  2. Advice on outcomes will be emailed to you by your regional office in January 2024. Successful providers will be required to provide a detailed project implementation plan against the key outcomes over the life of the project.
  3. Notification of a Service Agreement Variation will be sent to your organisation's signatory via SAMS2. Providers should check and ensure that your organisation's signatory is up to date in SAMS2.
  4. As a first milestone, complete the FLP Budget, Project Implementation Plan and Risk Mitigation Templates for discussion at an induction meeting with your regional office. This is one document with 3 worksheets.
  5. Additional milestone payments, determined as part of the funding agreement, will be made based on the achievement of agreed project milestones outlined in the Service Agreement Schedule.

Please note: Your signatory will have a five-day window to view the Service Agreement Variation after which SAMS2 will automatically accept on behalf of your signatory.
