Level 7 $17,000 $22,750
Level 8 $19,000 $26,000
From Sheila Brooks to Aine Rice (15 October 2001):
In the new pricing, level 5 is broken into two groups: Level 4 which is 10,000 to 14,999 FTEs (student loads) will be $11,000 and the new level 5 is 15,000 to 19,999 will be $14,500. Level 6 will then be 20,000 FTEs and above at $19,000 (this will be the highest number).
What I am saying to you is this:
1) If a customer moves from level 5 to level 6 we will take that into consideration when pricing them and would not jump them from $13K to $19K, we would allow for some intermittent pricing.
2) If you have a particular group in mind, such as the CAUL group then we would work with that group to make sure that their pricing as a whole did not increase above a certain percentage and
3) Sites always have the option of renewing early to maintain their same pricing.
