The second commissioning workshop was held with VCSE Alliance members and statutory commissioners in November 2022.

It focussed on Service Monitoring – how to achieve a more proportionate and co-productive approach.

Workshop objectives

  • To consider how the Council, NHS partners and VCSE sector can best work together to improve service monitoring
  • To develop a shared view of the main barriers and priorities for action
  • To share ideas about a Commissioning Academy and agree possible ways forward in developing a suitable model

Key messages

  • Develop a better shared understanding of each other’s perspectives from more sustained working together
  • The need for working towards a shared culture
  • The need to develop more consistency of approach, based on different levels of requirement depending on risk and size of contract

A Commissioning Academy for East Sussex- what might it look like, how do we begin to develop it?

  • A joint approach to developing a Commissioning Academy was agreed, with a Steering Group established to manage this programme of work in 2023
