The journey so far.....
What we said
‘The council spends a significant amount of money on a wide range of
'preventative' services. These services should be positioned as a
key part of the Council's approach to reducing demand for more
expensive or care services. It is proposed that these services will
be remodelled into a new integrated approach to demand
management which will be based on much greater targeting of
need and effectiveness and will be informed by consultation. This
will involve the reduction of services in some areas.’

Resource Allocation
Methodology - based on fair
and equitable distribution not
historic allocation

The alternative....
Across the board reductions...
...everything we have now but much less
...organisations but no real services
The reality of the situation
This is going to be difficult

Moving Forward:
• July 2012 – initial draft specification of outcomes, performance
measures and describing the expectations of the partner
relationship
• July–August 2012 – wide discussion on this with customers,
providers, schools and children’s centres, moving towards detailed
draft
• September 2012 – Advertise on Source Northants for a lead partner
in seven localities
• January/February 2013 – Contract award
• February onwards – Developing Locality Plans, Commissioning and
Decommissioning
Prevention and Demand Management
Transitional arrangements
• 2013/14 Savings of £2m – Work beginning now
• Locality Lead Providers (and their partners, as applicable), will need
to propose how decommissioning can best be managed – e.g. so
that service users in new arrangements are those who best fit the
new service model, rather than support being targeted arbitrarily
depending on which currently existing services may have been
used

Commissioning for Outcomes
Andrew Jepps
Assistant Director, Commissioning
A commissioning cycle
• Local outcomes
• Needs
• Supply
• Resources
• Monitor
• Review
• Improve
• Decommission
• Establish priorities
• Meet needs
effectively,
efficiently and
equitably
Analyse/
understand
Plan
Review
Do
• Decisions to secure
outcomes
• Capacity to deliver
Outcomes
• We like to commission for outcomes
• We need to commission on return on investment
• Sometimes proxy measures for outcomes are
appropriate
• Once we have procured, we contract monitor against
the successful bid
Engagement phase
• How can we meet outcomes?
• Are these ideas realistic?
– We all care about money
• Is there an evidence base?
• What about fairness and equity as opposed to
history?
Procurement phase
• This phase is rules based
• Decisions are made purely on the basis of what is
available through the process
• For example, some of the questions are scored
automatically
Do!
Engagement phase
• Engage creatively
• Engage realistically
• Describe what you do and know but also listen to
commissioners (and others)
Don’t!
Procurement phase
• Misread the questions
• Ignore the scoring levels
• Ignore what commissioners have said they are buying in
the service specification
• Assume your reputation will go before you or that
scorers will refer to information from outside the
process
• Think that procurement is about lobbying
