What is commissioning?
  • Commissioning is the process for deciding how
    to use the total resource available for children,
    young people and parents and carers in order to
    improve outcomes in the most efficient,
    effective, equitable and sustainable way.

5
Procurement and Contracting are
  • Procurement is the process of acquiring goods,
    works or services from (usually external)
    providers / suppliers and managing these through
    to the end of contract.
  • Contracting is the process of negotiating and
    agreeing the terms of a contract for services,
    and on-going management of the contract including
    payment and monitoring.
  • These two elements or tools amongst others, form
    part of the Do part of the commissioning cycle.
    They do not constitute all elements of the
    cycle.

Deciding Which Level is Best

    decision and the system design
  • Delegation, local democracy, accountability,
    brokerage and control systems
  • Maturity of the local market and provider
    relationships
  • Safeguarding and risks
  • Cost of implementation and change management
