Commissioning and procurement made easy

You want to find a better way to plan and purchase care and support services. But the way it works now is time-consuming, stressful and complicated, and when you’re not sure how all the policies and regulations fit together, it’s difficult to get everyone on the same page to try something different.

Our Improve Commissioning programme makes things simple.

We want you to feel more confident about commissioning and procurement without feeling stressed out about legislation, paperwork or process.

It’s more flexible than you might think!

If you’re a purchaser who wants to try something different, or a provider with a commitment to quality and innovation, this programme is for you. We’ll help you build better partnerships, so you can offer services for supported people that are truly person-centred.

We can support you now, wherever you are in the process.

Through our Improve Commissioning programme, CCPS aims to improve the way local and national care and support services are planned and purchased, by encouraging collaboration and promoting new ways of working. We:

  • Provide information and advice about the whole process, so you know what works and what you can do differently
  • Facilitate workshops and learning events, to help you cut through the jargon and navigate policy and practice with confidence
  • Offer targeted support to small groups, to help you explore new ways of working together to provide the best possible services
  • Support ‘collaboration readiness’, so you and your partners can build productive working relationships before the process even begins

What you can do now: 

Get handy resources. Check out our recent work, quick guides and publications here.

Get on the list. Sign up for our newsletter so you’re in the loop with our upcoming events and workshops.


The programme is jointly funded by CCPS and Scottish Government.
