ICF2 funding can cover administrative costs of testing and vaccinationICF2 funding can cover administrative costs of testing and vaccination

Criteria for the distribution of Infection Control Fund 2 have been extended to include reasonable administrative costs associated with organising and recording the outcomes of COVID-19 tests and organising COVID-19 vaccinations.

This change is the result of repeated requests from UKHCA to the Department of Health and Social Care.

Distribution in this way is subject to local authority discretion and only applies where costs are not supported by other government funding streams.

The guidance on Infection Control Fund 2 now contains an additional paragraph:

"On 19 February 2021, the Department clarified that funding under this allocation could also be used for reasonable administrative costs associated with (1) organising and recording the outcomes of COVID-19 tests and (2) organising COVID-19 vaccinations, where these were not being supported by other government funding streams. The decision to allow claims against the fund for these purposes would remain a choice for local authorities and no additional funding is being provided for these purposes."
