What Is Commissioning

  1. 1. What is Commissioning?
  2. 2. What is Commissioning? Well - put simply it is the process of: “Planning, paying for, and monitoring services”
  3. 3. What is Commissioning? Well - put simply it is the process of: “Planning, paying for, and monitoring services” Choosing what to buy, who will supply it, and checking that you get a good deal...
  4. 4. Think about choosing a new mobile phone... First you need to decide what features you want.
  5. 5. Think about choosing a new mobile phone... First you need to decide what features you want. (This is your specification)
  6. 6. Then you need to decide what are the most and least important things for you to make your decision... My Priorities 1. Good Camera 2. Cheap calls 3. Free access to Bebo 4. Built-in Radio 5. Built-in MP3 player 6. Good headphones 7. Alarm Clock
  7. 7. Then you need to decide what are the most and least important things for you to make your decision... My Priorities 1. Good Camera 2. Cheap calls 3. Free access to Bebo 4. Built-in Radio 5. Built-in MP3 player 6. Good headphones 7. Alarm Clock (These are your evaluation / assessment criteria)

  11. 11. Although if you are spending thousands, or even millions of pounds on a new service for young people - rather than a mobile phone - this stage is a bit different... You invite anyone who might provide the service to look at your specification and tell you how they would meet it. They each send in a ‘tender document’ which explains how they would provide the service you want & tells you how much it would cost.

You invite anyone who might provide the service to look at your specification and tell you how they would meet it. They each send in a ‘tender document’ which explains how they would provide the service you want & tells you how much it would cost. (This is called a tendering process) It’s like telling the people in each phone shop exactly what you want - and them each putting together a special deal just for you...
  13. 13. And then it’s decision time. You look back at the list of things you wanted. You think about the quality of service you can expect from different suppliers - and you choose who will provide your service.

  18. 18. But it doesn’t end there! Obviously if your phone stopped working - or the service needed to be better - you would go back to the supplier and tell them. Or you might find your needs change - so you would ask if they can be flexible and change the service a bit.
