Transcript

  • 1. Commissioning and Market Making Ivan Wintringham Regional Youth Work Unit – North East
  • 2. Some definitions... <ul><li>Commissioning – the cycle of assessing the needs of people in an area, designing and then securing an appropriate service </li></ul><ul><li>Procurement – the specific aspects of the commissioning cycle that focus on the process of buying services, from initial advertising through to appropriate contract arrangements </li></ul><ul><li>Decommissioning – reducing service activity or ending contract </li></ul>
  • 3. ‘ Local authorities taking a commissioning perspective to local services and utilising the full capacity of alternative suppliers (from the private, voluntary and community sectors, and from excellent service providers within local government) are key drivers to the reform and performance of our local services’ Department for Communities & Local Government
  • 4. Some context ... <ul><li>Gershon report (2004) – proposed local authorities achieve 2.5% efficiency savings per year, including through better procurement practice </li></ul><ul><li>Varney report (2005) – public services should focus on ‘citizens’ rather than ‘customers’ </li></ul><ul><li>Lyon report (2006) – promoted the role of the local authority in ‘place shaping’ – responsibility for the well-being of a community and its citizens </li></ul><ul><li>Local Government White Paper (2006) – local authorities as ‘convenors’ rather than deliverers </li></ul>
  • 5. ECM Context <ul><li>Focus on coordinated multi-agency working to increase efficiency and effectiveness of services </li></ul><ul><li>Central role for children, young people and families in planning and design of services </li></ul><ul><li>Services built around improving outcomes for children, young people and families </li></ul><ul><li>Development of integrated delivery, processes, strategy and governance </li></ul><ul><li>Key role of local authority as coordinator, but not necessarily deliverer of services </li></ul>

  • 7. Some key questions <ul><li>Quality </li></ul><ul><li>What mechanisms need to be in place to ensure the commissioning of quality services for young people? What are likely to be some of the challenges to achieving this? </li></ul><ul><li>Empowerment </li></ul><ul><li>How can young people, parents and the wider community be genuinely involved in the joint planning and joint commissioning of services? What steps need to be taken to encourage young people who are particularly disadvantaged or marginalised to participate? </li></ul>
  • 8. Key questions (contd) <ul><li>Access </li></ul><ul><li>What should local authorities be doing to broaden their range of ‘suppliers’ in order to ensure a wide range of provision is accessible to young people within their area? Who else should they be seeking to influence/build relationships with in order to improve access for young people? </li></ul>
