The parties to the agreement committed to implementing changes in the operation and provision of services by the Victorian government by adopting the principles of “labour mobility.” The principles recognize that the services required by the community of a modern public service are not static; they change all the time. According to the Departmental Funding Model (DFM), 2.5% of wage indexation is included in the price and is deducted from EBA costs before providing additional financing. The DFM indexation, considered a DFM indexation, is calculated on the basis of the corresponding salaries at the time of the expiration of the previous EBA and applied annually to the salary base. All public hospitals or health services concerned who feel that the funding it receives reflects the cost to which it is exposed to implement the “new” results of the enterprise agreement may submit their case to the Department for review. (First, public hospitals and health services should make their own calculations in the direction described in the example above.) The ministry will verify these local calculations on request. The more “localized” modeling method also implies a more direct link between EBA costs and the application of DFM indexation for each public hospital or health service to determine the appropriate level of additional resources. This means that if the department has calculated the DFM indexation as a match or an increase in EBA costs in a given year (or year), there will be no additional funding in the corresponding year (or years). This was taken into account in the ministry`s calculations on the ability of public mental health services to cover the costs of implementing the 2016 e-mail regulation, including the payment of exceptional lump sum payments on an exceptional basis under the agreement. The department provides only an indexation of government funding. Public hospitals and public health services should provide funds from these other sources to support the costs of business agreement. The seventeen public hospitals and public health services concerned (“Mental Health Services,” called in 2016 Mental Health EA have an obligation to provide the salaries and benefits described in this document since their commissioning. The Department will not consider any cases of review of the funding of the enterprise agreement, unless the public hospital or public health department has clearly and fully identified the nature and relevance of the costs considered “unfunded”.
In addition, the public hospital or public health must demonstrate that it has identified and applied all available sources of funding and revenues that could help cover the costs involved. Public hospitals and health services are reminded that the ministry does not fund 100% of their activities. Hospitals and health services generally have other sources of income, including — but not limited to Commonwealth funding and grants (e.g. B funding of hospital beds for residences), income from private practice and revenue from business units. With regard to the current business negotiation cycle, the department, in its budget modelling, referred more directly to the personal profile of the public hospitals or health care concerned than in previous cycles, where budget modelling has focused more on “whole sector profiles”.
