At a time of resource shortages many public service organisations are looking at new ways to ensure that resources are used efficiently. This webinar looks at how new models of commissioning are essential if this is to be achieved effectively. Commissioning has to change to secure the best possible outcomes for clients and communities within the resources available.
This means abandoning commissioning models which measure results in terms of activity and breaking the barriers that prevent integration of services. It also means changing the job description of the commissioner from a drafter of service specifications and contractual detail to a facilitator of service change.
New models of commissioning based on evidence, consensus and participation are the best hope for success. In this webinar we will examine this and discuss some methods such as social impact bonds that help to achieve this.
The webinar will be presented by James Plunket. James has helped VCSE organisations develop commercial strategies and provide services to public service commissioners. He is also developing social impact bonds to that tackle significant social issues across the country. James is also working with government and investment bodies that are working towards standardised impact measurements.
