The Independent Hospital Pricing Authority (IHPA) is an independent government agency established by the Commonwealth as part of the National Health Reform Act 2011. IHPA was established to contribute to reforms to improve Australian public hospitals. A major component of these reforms is the implementation of Activity Based Funding (ABF).

The annual Activity Based Funding Conference provides IHPA with the opportunity to deliver education on its work to stakeholders and the general public.

IHPA requires the services of a conference organiser for the planning and management of the Activity Based Funding Conference 2019 (ABF19) to be held in Melbourne in May 2019.

It is anticipated there will be between 400-500 delegates attending, although the successful tenderer should have the capacity to handle an increase from the estimated delegate numbers.

The event format includes one day of pre-conference workshops and two conference days. The conference days will comprise keynote, plenary and concurrent speaker sessions, as well as up to two panel sessions. Historically, up to two social events have been included in the program, for which the successful tenderer will also be responsible.

IHPA has conducted successful ABF conferences from 2012 – 2017 in Australia. The conference attracts around 400-450 delegates with workshop attendance numbers between 200-250 delegates.

The objective of this project is to engage a conference organiser who will, in consultation with IHPA and the conference steering committee, coordinate the conference.
