We are an integral part of the education system, mainly SEN but some mainstream and also social services use us via the school system, they could never rearrange 20,000 contracts in a limited timescale and without the lowest bidder who does it already.

County are paying in full for all routes this week if they operate or not

Quote:
SCC will be paying full contact price for transport for the week 23rd March – 27th March 2020 even if the transport is stood down. Payments and operation beyond this date will be communicated later this week as detailed above.


If schools/SCC explicitly inform the operator that a route is not to run or that none of students will be travelling to school, then transport does not have to operate but will be paid in full for the week 23.3.2020 – 27.03.2020.

This payment is subject to operators using this payment to pay staff.

We had an email from Leicestershire CC yesterday that now states that it is normal practice to NOT pay for any journeys that don't take place but they are reviewing this.


under NORMAL circumstance

on day to day runnings (even then they pay us if theres less than 24hrs notice)


these are not normal times and cabinet/HMG have issued advice

Not specifically, but the government are saying that all contracts should be honoured up to the end of June.

So the answer should be that they are paying a retainer and it must be 100%.
