Document What is the format of a contract number now Compass has gone live?

All contract numbers will now be a random 10 digit number.
Existing contract numbers held on Payments Online (POL) will be migrated to Compass, however ‘tag’ numbers are no longer relevant. Pre-Compass contract tag numbers will form part of the new ten digit contract number format.                                                                                  

Example: The pre-Compass contract number was 101101/0001, this will now be contract number 1011010001.
Going forward, all contract numbers belonging to the same person will be grouped into a named provider. These will be identified by a 6 digit ‘Provider ID’.
