Presentation Transcript

Moving towards integrated commissioning of children’s services in Warwickshire


  • “We need to see every local authority moving from provider to commissioner so that the system acquires a local dynamism responsive to the needs of their communities and open to change and new forms of school provision”

    Tony Blair 24.10.05


  • Focuses on the arrangements that are put in place to deliver services for individuals and/or groups.


  • Is about obtaining maximum value for money in contracting for the goods and services that enable the organisation to deliver its business objectives


  • Is about enhancing the competitiveness of the supply base

Commissioning is….

  • “… the process of specifying, securing and monitoring services to meet people’s needs at a strategic level. This applies to all services, whether they are provided by the local authority, NHS, other public agencies or by the private or voluntary sectors.”

  • (Making Ends Meet, October 2003)

  • Align resources with the local area agreement frameworks Review current services across the sector against priorities and re-commission and de-commission

  • Integrate capital resources [in particular land,buildings and IT]

  • Embed the community strategy as the core framework for delivering children’s services priorities

What needs to be done 3 Every Child Matters

  • Streamline planning processes and clarify accountabilities

  • Construct a commissioning strategy, based on assessed need, priorities and gaps in current provision,and which meets national requirements and local expectations

  • Establish commissioning as a core activity with the children’s partnership
