Delivering public services

This page is free to all
This section of Knowhow supports charities in the delivery of public services through commissioning, procurement or contracts.

It covers all aspects of the commissioning cycle and contracting - from deciding whether or not to bid through to writing pre-qualification questionnaires and tenders. It also explains some of the technical aspects of commissioning in detail, such as the law covering TUPE  and monitoring outcomes.

We also have a detailed section on building voluntary sector consortia.
