This one-hour session is aimed at supporting you to put in place new partnerships between public authorities and social enterprises and the wider social economy sector.
Participants will get practical insights into implementing 5 key correctives for public service reform:
• Commissioning shapes ecosystems
• Purpose must drive process
• Intrinsic social value
• Centrality of public benefit
• Partnership replacing transaction
We will explore what might change following the introduction of the Government’s new Public Procurement Bill, how to build on progressive practice in the context of the Bill and we will answer questions about practical projects you are working on.
The fifth in the series of E3M procurement to partnership webinars featuring practical case studies of relational commissioning and the development of successful partnerships, this session will draw together some of the key ingredients for success from the examples we have explored previously and give the opportunity for participants to get answers to their questions on issues they are currently dealing with.
