DWP Consultation - Commissioning

The Department for Work and Pensions has begun a consultation seeking views from stakeholders and experts on the DWP 2013 Commissioning Strategy for welfare-to-work outcomes and services.  The strategy will present a series of principles that will guide DWP’s commissioning activity.

The consultation period begins on 31 July 2013 and runs until 27 September 2013, and responses should be emailed to commissioning.strategy@dwp.gsi.gov.uk.

The consultation sets out a series of and poses a number of questions, including:

  • How should DWP balance its responsibility to strategically manage and steward a large, developing market with our desire to maintain and develop the right specialist capability throughout the supply chain?
  • How can we make competition more effective? How can we break down the barriers to market entry through our contracting, for both our larger and smaller contracts? How could we increase competition through the procurement process? What role can Open Data21 play?
  • How should DWP design outcomes and service standards for the hardest-to-help within outcome-focused payment models?
  • How can DWP efficiently and effectively monitor and manage service quality within the wider framework described in this document?
  • How, when assessing bids, should we balance price and quality?
