A model of the commissioning process - delivering to users

Once a financial relationship has been established, a number of issues become more significant. All of these issues need to be considered earlier, certainly before services begin to be delivered, but this is a convenient point for us to discuss them:

Key questions to ask

Have I assessed the risks involved with my service and its financial relationship with the third sector?

Am I funding an appropriate proportion of management and overhead costs?

Is my payment model appropriate for the outcomes to be achieved?

Does my payment model prejudice third sector organisations?
