No Offence! "Best practice in contracts and partnering for Transforming Rehabilitation" Conference


19th March 2014

Number One Pride Place, Pride Park, Derby

Conference Brief

The government intentions are to contract out a significant part of current probation work addressing what the government believes to cover lower risk offenders. It is intended that the new providers will either be First Tier (Prime Contractors), Second Tier (Sub-Contractors) or Third Tier (providers commissioned by way of grant agreements). The delivery arrangements will be underpinned by a Payment by Results mechanism. This conference will provide those intending to bid for or deliver work through the Transforming Rehabilitation (TR) programme with a detailed understanding of the proposed procurement process and its key legal and contractual elements. This will include panel presentations by key organisations and stakeholders and interactive workshops looking at some of the detailed issues related to delivery of the TR work. The topics to be covered include the core elements of public services contracts ( including payment by results), collaboration through joint ventures, consortia or partnering, supply chain and sub-contracting arrangements, workforce issues,and opportunities for mutuals, social enterprises and charities.

Delegates will have the benefit of both detailed practical and legal input via the conference sessions to help them to maximise their understanding of and their commercial interests in the TR programme.
