Policy Development Project (PDP)

LCSA first developed a generic suite of Policy and Procedures for members in 2011, which was updated in 2013. Because this was a self-funded project, members bought into and paid for the policies at a cost of $2,000+GST. For those member organisations who subscribed previously, these original policies are still available to them, while automatically having access to the new and most up-to-date policy suite produced in 2018.

PDP Subscription Costs

LCSA Members who wish to access the Policy Development Project (PDP) for the first time, the initial buy-in price is $2,000+GST for all policies.

While LCSA considers the cost of $2,000 cheap in comparison to what an individual member would have to pay a consultant for a similar set of policies, we are aware that some services with small amounts of funding may find this difficult. Therefore, on a case-by-case basis, LCSA is willing to negotiate a price that is meaningful and affordable based on your circumstances, or make certain sections or individual policies available to you at a smaller cost. Please contact Lyn or Can at LCSA to discuss these options further.

Non-LCSA Members who wish to access the Policy Development Project for the first time, the initial buy-in price is $4,000+GST.
