Supporting Links to Commissioning (SLtC) understand how commissioning works in Leeds and can support you to understand how Leeds City Council approaches commissioning, how the Third Sector approaches it and what structures there are in place for you to become involved. 

The commissioning agenda is a factor driving third sector organisations to be better organised and managed. A lot of this is about organisational health, that is, having requires having good systems in place.

Commissioning is increasingly tending to focus on larger contracts and smaller numbers of them. Collaborating can enable groups to compete for contracts that they might be unlikely to win by themselves. SLtC can also advise you on collaboration and consortium building and helps organisations to be more aware of the commissioning agenda and procurement issues.
