This event was aimed at providers of housing support and commissioners. It provided an opportunity to hear about procurement and commissioning legislation and the opportunities and flexibilities presented by it. Various approaches to commissioning and procurement were considered and reflection on the consequences for organisations. Participants were invited to share their experiences of managing the risks associated with different commissioning and procurement approaches such as collaborative approaches and framework agreements.
By bringing provider organisations and commissioners together we hope to facilitate a greater understanding of both the opportunities and the challenges various approaches to commissioning and procurement present.
Speakers included: Dee Fraser, Coalition of Care and Support Providers Scotland; Sam McClean, McLean Consultancy; Des McCart, Healthcare Improvement Scotland.
