Public Benefit Partnerships: Commissioning for innovation, social value and impact
September 24 @ 9:30 am - 5:00 pm
We are partnering with E3M for a special seminar on “Public Benefit Partnerships”.
The event has been developed in response to the changing context for local public services including:
- The need for new innovative models. The public want more choice, there is growing demand and limited resources.
- Concern over traditional outsourcing failures with large private companies.
- Increasing interest in social value and how to use resources for maximum benefit to the community.
- Issues with transactional procurement relations that are limiting change and, in some cases, resulting in service failure.
Public benefit partnerships offer a new relationship-based model of organising services, working with social enterprises and other trading public benefit organisations. This seminar offers the chance to learn about the principles and practice of how they work (including how they fit within procurement regulations), with practical case studies of pioneering successful models and examples of new forms of social investment that can support innovation in this field.
