The Leeds Commissioning Network has been set up by VAL's Commissioning Support service to support and enhance the work of the service and strengthen the local third sector’s engagement with commissioning in Leeds.
As VAL doesn't have any specific resources to run it, the network will mainly operate on a virtual basis, initially by email. There will not be any regular newsletters or meetings, although we anticipate there will be occasional workshops or other events, and nor are we at present planning any on-line interactive element. The network is intended to provide a mechanism for Commissioning Support to consult on matters such as the development of the Leeds Commissioning Code of Practice; to seek feedback and input into the work of the service; and to circulate items of interest which may include tendering opportunities.
The network is primarily intended for the local third sector organisations that VAL exists to support, and will be most relevant for senior staff and others with responsibilities with regard to securing public contracts.
