Code of Practice Private & Voluntary Sector by NCVO & Serco

The National Countil for Voluntary Organisations are working with Serco to produce a code to promote good practice and co-operative working between the private sector and voluntary and community sector in delivery of public services. NCVO are inviting interested parties to contribute their views and ideas on the draft guidelines to create something workable and of practical use.

The aim is to provide guidance and best practice advice to large prime contractors on the principles of good sub-contracting.  It builds upon the Merlin Standard the and the VCS Compact and aims to complement this guidance, ensuring the standards are well understood and can be practically applied.  NCVO say that,  "Given that public service reform is likely to lead to more contracting for the VCS directly with the private sector, and less with the state, it is important that standards of sub-contracting are improved, that good practice is shared and that a better mutual understanding of the nature, motivations and needs of the respective sectors is fostered."

Responses are required by Friday 15 June.
