NCVO drafting code of practice for public / private cooperation
SERCO and NCVO are working together to produce a code to promote good practice and co-operative working between the private sector and voluntary and community sector in the delivery of public services. They’re seeking your comments as they draft this tool.
NCVO want to hear your comments about these draft guidelines. You can respond to psdnetwork [at] ncvo-vol [dot] org [dot] uk by Friday 15 June.
When government and other policy makers choose a public services model where large 'prime' contracts are run by large organisations, then this guide is intended to provide guidance and best practice advice. These principles of good sub-contracting would equally apply to contracts directly managed by the public sector and, indeed, to contracting exclusively within the VCS.
