Co-production and user involvement in commissioning

This page is free to all
Co-production is a practice in which citizens are involved in the creation of public policies and services.
Co-production is a practice in which citizens are involved in the creation of public policies and services. It is contrasted with a transaction-based method of service delivery in which citizens consume public services which are conceived of and provided by governments. Co-production is possible in the private and non-profit sectors in addition to the public sector. In contrast with traditional citizen involvement, citizens are not only consulted, but are part of the conception, design, steering, and management of services. Wikipedia

Examples

This practice is encouraged by procurement regulations – Regulation 67 (8): ‘…Contracting authorities may take into account any relevant considerations, including… the specific needs of different categories of users; [and] the involvement and empowerment of users.’
