Two fantastic new blog posts – I feel a bit like an NPC groupie, but I can’t help it when they produce such great work!
David Pritchard’s post is about the sector response to the Ministry of Justice payment-by-results proposals with a link to the report out of their workshop. The report lays out the stakeholder perspectives and the ‘key principles’ really nicely – clear and concise. Most of the issues are similar to what we’ve come across in Social Benefit Bond developments, but they organise it well and it’s always good to get perspective on the same issues being from elsewhere.
Iona Joy posts on the complexity of contracts and how developing tendering departments may not be something we want charities to do! She compares her experience with long, arduous contracts as a banker to the simpler ones of venture capital.
