It is time to deliver some ‘quick hit’ savings and improvements to commissioning and procurement of children’s services! Léonie’s recent article in Children and Young People Now highlights how flexing payment terms, earlier settlement of claims for inflationary pay rises and fee increases, and focussing on linking these to improved outcomes costs nothing but bring in tangible financial and wider benefits which can be delivered quickly.
The challenges of the procurement bill in 2023 and beyond.
Due to become law shortly, we still do not know how children’s or adult social care will be treated by the new legislation. Léonie is in discussion with the DfE (Children’s Homes Policy and SEND teams) about the opportunities and challenges for children’s services under the procurement bill.
Why focussing on local locality based procurement for children in care is a more effective method of delivering child focussed value for money services than large regional frameworks.
Léonie’s response to the CMA’s Children’s social care market study interim report puts the case.
