NOTICE OF POLICY CHANGE
AFAS Standardized Pricing


This notification is coming to you because you are an important part of the AFAS independent contractor network. We are expecting growth and increased volume throughout 2015. In preparation for that growth, we are implementing new processes and policies. Each modification to our business has been carefully planned and developed to help create efficiencies and improved practices that will allow us to scale and operate more effectively.
Introduction:
On February 23, 2015, AFAS is implementing a standardized pricing platform. The new pricing will be included on any order offered to you on or after February 23, 2015. The new platform standardizes our pricing across ALL clients, investor types, and vendors. The new platform supersedes any previously negotiated rates with the exception of Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands.
We performed a comprehensive study of our pricing and invoicing to determine gaps and opportunities for processes improvement. The study revealed the following opportunities for improvement:
Build consistency in the average rates that AFAS pays across all service items
Bring AFAS pricing into alignment with current market conditions
Eliminate unnecessary activities
Using the factors above, AFAS has identified commonly used service line items that will be covered under the standardized rates. If a service cannot be completed for the standardized pricing established, vendors will continue to use the current bidding process and guidelines.
Key Areas of Change:
· Vendor Management Fee – This fee will be eliminated. This means that the $2.00 charge for the VMF will no longer be charged on any work order.
· Vendor Base Fee – VBF will be eliminated and all orders will be invoiced to AFAS on a per line item basis.
PPR Debris - Debris will now be standardized across all states, vendors, and clients in the pre-sale environment. The rates will be standardized at $30CYD. This is a significant increase in many geographic areas and client portfolios.
· REO Debris - REO debris pricing will be $19CYD up to the overage as well as any debris removed above the allowable once bid.
· Debris CYD Verification – Wide-angle before and after load shots of all containers, trailers, and truck beds utilized to transport debris from site will be required to help verify cube counts. Eviction debris will be validated in the same way if it is removed from site. If debris is moved to the curb it will be estimated as it lays on the curb. All existing photo requirements remain.
· Grass Cuts – Grass cuts will be standardized across clients and investors. Pricing will remain on a state specific schedule. Available on page 6 of this announcement.
· Winterizations – Winterizations will be standardized across clients and investors. Pricing will remain on a state specific schedule. Available on page 5 of this announcement.
· Interior Inspections on Recuts – Interior inspections and interior surveys will no longer be required on grass recuts unless otherwise specified on the work order. All Wells Fargo grass cuts will continue to require an interior inspections and property condition survey to be completed.
· Boarding - All boarding will now be measured in United Inches (UI) and paid at $0.65 per UI. All boarding is to be completed with 5/8” inch plywood.
· Rekeys - (First lock per entry)- $35 each
· Additional Lock - (Second lock per entry) - $10.00 each

We understand that change can be difficult, but these are necessary steps to continue to successfully build your business and ours in today’s market. With the standardized pricing there are areas of gains and losses, and we believe that the overall outcome will benefit us all.

I Sent my email Wishing to be removed and contact terminated.I can Not work for these people with the prices now.I said to them-


We can not work with the current pricing going into effect For example i can not understand how someone in Utah can be paid $30.00 a yrd as someone in New York be paid the same amount and the operation cost is Drastically Different We pay $90.00 per ton to dump.Locks are $35.00 When hud pays upwards of 65.00 and a secondary $10.00???Our locks cost 6.00 each???.
We can NOT & will NOT work with the pricing going into effect.
