NLGN Report Launch: Commissioning Dialogues

A partnership with the CBI

NLGN and CBI are launching a major report on the future of local government commissioning.

The report launch will feature a debate on this issue featuring contributions from:
Rt. Hon. Don Foster MP, Parliamentary Under Secretary of State, Department for Communities and Local Government
Joanna Killian, Chief Executive, Essex County Council

The way that councils are commissioning services is in the midst of profound change. Confronted with the deepest cuts in living memory, local government has confounded the expectations of those who presumed an early outsourcing boom. Even the best councils accept a perfect commissioning model for the next generation of public services is currently not in hand. NLGN and the CBI’s report articulates the necessary steps needed to improve the local government service market while bringing together the views of public, private and third sectors to develop practical recommendations for the next generation of commissioning practice.
