The FIN-S has chosen to work with a specialised Agency that will handle services for the participants. The name of the Agency is ORION. The ILS had several meetings with the FIN-S and its agent to analyse and compare the provided services and has concluded that the package proposed is very competitive and covers all the needs of the participants. The rates are lower than the rates of LWC 2014, LWC 2016 and LWC 2018 for similar services provided.
