With rising demand for public services especially for the vulnerable, but with less money and other resources available from the State, councils play a critical role in holding the loop between citizens and public services.
In commissioning, providing and procuring services, new ways have to be found to sustain economic growth, controlled consumption and social inclusion. There are few pots of money (if any) available for achieving these ends as projects in their own right. Instead many local authorities are rising to the challenge of pursuing these ends across all their functions – these ends have to be achieved through the mainstream of local government activity.
Recent changes in legislation and case law relevant to the commissioning cycle mean that social value and community consultation are much more significant than perhaps appreciated previously and not necessarily for the reasons that most people might anticipate!
