The intention of an Aggregate Contract Monitoring (ACM) standard file format is to enable the interchange, in a uniform and consistent format, of monthly aggregate contract monitoring between the purchasers and providers of healthcare. This will ensure that monthly reporting of contracted activity and its value is comprehensive and meets the business requirements of NHS England as a commissioner, for the purposes of Schedule 6 of the NHS Standard Contract.
