Rathbone Regional Response Fund final report


The decision was made to re-evaluate the project and focus on the development of an effective Contract Management strategy. The contract management strategy is a holistic framework mapping the ‘partner journey’ from expression of interest through to performance management, inclusive within the framework are arrangements for testing the effectiveness of providers financial, quality, self assessment, training and development health and safety, safeguarding and compliance arrangements. This framework goes beyond what is required for standard subcontracting arrangements. The framework ensures the organisation has in place effective processes, management information and communication channels that are robust, leads to provision that meets the needs of the learners in the localities it operates in, improved outcomes for young people accessing programmes through a third party, and reduced financial risk to both the lead provider and the third party. This framework will support collective business planning activities across the provider network
