Commissioning and procurement

This section of Knowhow supports charities that are delivering or thinking about delivering public services through contracts.

It covers all aspects of the commissioning cycle and contracting - from deciding whether or not to bid through to writing pre-qualification questionnaires and tenders, and forming consortia. It also explains some of the technical aspects of commissioning in detail, such as the law covering TUPE  and monitoring outcomes.

NCVO is an approved provider for Big Potential, a Big Lottery Fund grant fund, which aims to raise awareness of the social investment market and support VCSEs who want to prepare themselves for social investment or winning contracts

Please contact if you spot something incorrect or you need some information that we have not covered. Thank you.
