Public Benefit Partnerships: Commissioning for Innovation, Social Value and Impact.

Event Date: 24.09.2019 |Time: 9.30 - 17.00 |Location: London (exact location TBC) |Categories: Events, Featured

This one-day seminar is aimed at senior leaders and commissioners in local public authorities, social enterprises that trade in public service markets and others interested in supporting the development of new solutions for services in local communities.

Building on E3M’s ground-breaking work in applying the principles of The Art of the Possible in Public Procurement, the event will explore how innovative approaches are being developed to harness the power of social enterprises to work in partnership with public authorities to tackle local challenges and improve outcomes for people and communities.

Social enterprises offer a clear alternative to outsourcing to private, share-value driven companies. New commissioning models are being developed, based on true social value, where social enterprises are re-investing profits and interests are aligned in pursuit of public benefit. This is based on an approach that moves from transactional procurement based on cheapest price, to developing relational partnerships.

Providing a mix of expert advice, exploration of practical case studies and interactive peer-learning among those taking part, this seminar will showcase the latest examples and thinking about public bodies and social enterprises working together, and explore the critical issues for success.

Seminar developed in partnership with the PSTA logo
