Hi there, sorry only just saw this and I’ve posted this comment under the discussion with the Department:
Hi there, on the Appendix 1 for the Quarterly Report, all the feedback provided by the Department in the email, we are already reporting in this way.
The suggested change under Client information – Include group and 1-1s would make way more work for us. Would like to see this remain and 1-1s only as sorting through all our events and group info with hundreds and thousands of participants would be far too much to resource. Everything else is fine but essentially suggesting apart from some basic tidying up that the form is not changed, thanks.
No – I don’t remember seeing that or being given the opportunity to comment.
If the ability to have a say, give feedback etc is limited to being AEA members who pay, then we have a problem with it not actually representing all of us, which I believe was the original intention of the industry body?
I’m not sure that it gives a great message to the Dept either, as it’s not truly representing more than a small handful (6 to date?) of EFS providers….
