Following the revision and re-launch of the Portsmouth Compact a Providers Network has been set up to maintain and develop the commissioning relationship with existing or potential new providers of services from the voluntary sector. This Network will be facilitated by PCC Integrated Commissioning Unit and feed into the Compact review group.
The network holds four themed meetings a year, for commissioners and for organisations who contract/could contract with the council. The focus of the network is around:
- Disseminating information about Policy and information and ongoing implications
- To develop understanding of commissioning process and plans
- Develop the Commissioning and Funding Framework for the Voluntary and Community Sector
The first meeting of the Network was held in July 2014, when the focus of the meeting was the Better Care Fund. Further meetings have focussed on the delivery of preventative services and priorities for the city,
Additional workshops will be facilitated in response to demand and this recently included the subject of procurement followed up with a worked through tender case study.
