The contract management process forms the interface between the Purchaser (the LA) and the Provider, and as such, needs to be robust enough for a judgement to be made with regard to the value and effectiveness of services. This information is vital, as it will feed into the overall Commissioning Strategy for each service area. To assure this, the Children’s Services Commissioning team has developed the Joint Evaluation Toolkit (JET) which has been implemented for contract management across all Providers managed by the Commissioning team.
The JET has been designed to manage the performance and risks of contracted services delivered; evaluating the quality of service provided against the associated costs to assist Children’s Services in determining if the service provides value for money and improves outcomes for children and young people.
The JET provides a common understanding of perceived performance between the provider and the LA, and will act as a driver for continuous improvement in service delivery with the aim that all services deliver outstanding provision.
