commissioning guide coverEqually relevant to voluntary sector organisations and Compact partnerships, this detailed guide includes: 

  • Guidance on what the commissioning cycle looks like,
  • How and when Compact groups and voluntary organisations can engage with commissioners and what the challenges are
  • A practical action list for Compact groups (or any voluntary organisations seeking to work with commissioners), and a glossary of terms.

The guide covers service design and planning, legislative contexts, types of contracts, the tendering process, and much more.
