Third sector organisations have a vital role to play in public service provision, especially in these times of increasing emphasis on stakeholder accountability and community involvement.
This guide from CIPFA looks at how the public services can benefit from commissioning from the third sector and in particular the social and economic significance of this form of partnership working.
At the heart of the guidance is the desire to improve mutual understanding and so encourage relationship building between third sector and public sector organisations. To this end the document includes practical advice and examples aimed at strengthening partnership working.
Both public sector commissioners and third sector organisations in the role of potential contract bidder will find this guidance of importance, and it has been compiled with these readerships in mind.

As such this guide provides a unique insight.
