The DoT SURVEY is the GRANT APPLICATION FORM HERE.
This SURVEY MUST be completed and lodged by 19 OCTOBER, 2020.
NO Survey lodged = NO $$$ from Support package.
Late applications WILL NOT be accepted.
Yet 10 weeks after this presentation only 2 meagre parts of this package have been executed. We are still waiting on the 3 big ticket items!
DoT is responsible for the delivery and implementation of the outstanding grants, which are:
Major/Large BSPs have been sent a Funding Agreement by the DoT and they have been asked to complete and return it asap.
All other BSPs have been sent an email by the DoT requesting them to complete a survey, so that they can be considered for funding assistance.
NOTE: Of concern is the fact that small operators with only 1 or 2 vehicles and who do not off-load jobs, have not been sent any information. These people/entities ARE entitled to some funding support. Yet they have not been notified that they are eligible for funding. This is primarily due to the fact that the CPVV does not know who they are and the DoT doesn't want to send an email to all who have a vehicle registered as a commercial passenger vehicle — which is about 50,000 emails.
Just like other operators, these small operators MUST complete a DoT Survey to be considered for assistance.
The reason that DoT is asking the industry to answer the Survey's questions, is due to the fact that the industry regulator (CPVV) is unable to provide the DoT with the information required to make final calculations for the distribution of money for this Support package.
Since 2019 CPVV has been collecting information from the BSPs every month which should have provided the DoT with sufficient information to make an informed decision on distribution of the grant monies. But, unfortunately, the CPVV did not have sufficient data to share with the DoT.
