Confirmed Annual Sourcing Program
HPV consults with public hospitals and health services each year to agree what categories are 'in scope' for HPV in line with the HPV Health Purchasing Policies (2017). Once published by HPV, this list becomes the Confirmed Annual Sourcing Program (CASP). Hospitals and health services may only enter into a contract or renew any current contract with suppliers for goods or services listed in the CASP where there is a contractual capacity to terminate any such contract when a relevant HPV contract is entered.

HPV Agreement Transition Clause
HPV notes that not all health service contracts contain a clause that allows a health service to readily transition to the terms and conditions set out in a HPV agreement for the same product or service.
When included in a health service agreement, the transition clause available at the link below assists health services in strengthening and clarifying their contractual requirements in relation to HPV.
The clause allows health services to transition from an existing local contract to a HPV contract when HPV establishes a common or state-wide contract.
HPV encourages health services to include this transition clause in all contracts as it provides flexibility to transition to a HPV contract - and its associated benefits - as soon as possible.
Further information about the confidentiality and transition clauses for health services is available on the Procurement Guidelines, Tools and Templates page, accessible to registered health service personnel.
