  • Joint LGA/ADCS support programme ‘React’ launched

Commissioning

cycle

Detailed end-to-end commissioning process has been developed

YPLA design

Detailed design work progressed with stakeholders – including agreeing core functions and purpose and interactions with SFA and NAS

Transition

planning

  • Working with LSC to best retain staff expertise

  • Tracking and transition years in place for 2009/10 and 2010/11

41 proposed across 9 regions

Guidance issued for Stage 2


End-to-end commissioning cycle provision from the LSC to Local Authorities from 2010


Commissioning from third sector providers

The ‘Working Together’ Strategy identified the following as particular strengths of Third Sector provision:

Developing provision in direct response to community needs;

Responding quickly to changes in demand;

Working holistically across boundaries.

We believe that the 16-19 transfer offers the opportunity to build upon these strengths, ensuring that LAs can best draw upon the high-quality personalised services that Third Sector providers offer to communities and young people

For all providers, a governing principle of the new system is to minimise the number of commissioning conversations.

We recognise that “Third Sector” covers a broad range of organisations, from large organisations covering the whole of England, to small groups serving the needs of a particular community, and that both small and large groups have a vital role to play.

There therefore has to be a differentiated approach, to ensure that the needs of all learners are met.

Commissioning from Third Sector providers


Commissioning local and national levels

For Third Sector organisations operating at a as particular strengths of Third Sector provision:local or sub-regional level: the ‘home’ local authority will commission provision directly, informed by discussions with sub-regional partners

For organisations making provision for young people right across the country, we propose that there could be a single contract covering all these operations, rather than contracts with every local authority.

Contracts will be drawn up by the YPLA (potentially at a regional or national level), informed by aggregated demand from LAs.

Commissioning: local and national levels


Commissioning function for specific groups

Further work is now underway internally on the commissioning function for specific groups: LLDD, Third Sector and specialist providers (e.g. land based colleges) looking at:

Whether a common approach should be taken to all national providers, and if so, definition of the approach.

Assessing how national level provision in these areas is different to Youth Offender provision (which we are clear should be commissioned locally by the host LA).

Working through implications for YPLA and LA resourcing.

Whether the YPLA should have a small role in national level analysis. If so how does this fit with LA analysis?

Working out how a DCSF national provider system might link with DIUS’s accreditation system for post-19 providers.

Commissioning function for specific groups


Ypla design principles

Strong sectoral presence - commissioning function for specific groups: LLDD, Third Sector and specialist providers (e.g. land based colleges) looking at:Ensure governance structures (in particular the NDPB Board) are well represented by LA and wider sector bodies

Minimise bureaucracy - Nature, scope and size of the regional structures will be designed to ensure there is maximum capacity being transferred to LAs and sub-regional groupings, with the support to deliver in a non-bureaucratic way.

An enabler - YPLA is in the background as an enabler – ensuring LAs are provided with the data, management information and strategic analysis that enables them to make excellent local commissioning decisions.

Will have back-stop powers - YPLA will not be undertaking provider performance management or the performance management of local authorities, but will have as a last resort a backstop function to intervene where LAs’ duties are not being delivered effectively.

YPLA – Design Principles
