Early Years Funding – New Process for Overclaims/Conflicts

Dear Provider,

We have recently reviewed our process for notifying settings of overclaims/conflicts with regards to Early Years Funding. Previously we have sent messages via the Provider Portal but to simplify the process these will now be sent by email to the registered email address. The email will include the initials of the child and details of the overclaim. Please can we ask you to keep a look out for these emails, check your junk/spam folder and action as soon as possible.

Once you have communicated with the other provider and have a resolution, please reply to the relevant email with the details/information required to enable us to resolve the conflict. Please copy in the other provider so they have the details of your response. Please do not include details of multiple children on one email response.

Where an overclaim has occurred please follow our Conflict Process for Providers If there was no contact/communication with the other provider prior to headcount you will need to follow the process from Step 4. 

The deadline for responses is Friday 18th June 2021.  Overclaims have to be resolved before we are able to make other data checks and process the balancing headcount payments.

Kind regards

EYEF Team
