The current covenant between agencies and federations, which is based on deficit financing from the federation, should be changed to a value-added model, which enables both partners in the covenant to meet service delivery challenges more effectively. This new model is based on three principles: federation-agency affiliation is not necessarily forever, planning informs allocations, and the federation can be an aggressive service provider on behalf of the agencies. Such services include health insurance, group purchasing, training, research, and management assistance.
