Code of Practice on Sub-Contracting with Primes

17 Apr 2013 - 17:34 by Nigel Rose

NCVO and Serco have jointly written a code of practice to cover the relationships between the private sector and the voluntary sector. Its scope is wider than sub-contracting but in practice for many voluntary organisations this has been the only time that they have had contact with Prime Contractors. The experience has often not been a positive one.

12 Apr 2013 - 12:34 by michelle.foster

The aim of this newly created post is to improve commissioning between the public sector and the voluntary and community sector (VCS), focusing on Manchester and Greater Manchester commissioning. My focus is on the process: the way consultation is carried out; how specifications are written; when and how are decisions about recommissioning made; how information about new commissions are disseminated; commissioning processes that build on the strengths of the VCS; how appropriate forms are for VCS organisations.
