Southend-on-Sea Commissioning Framework

Minute 771 (Cabinet Agenda Item No.6 refers)

Called in by Councillors L Burton, I Gilbert, A Chalk and R Woodley


The Committee considered Minute 771 of Cabinet held on 12th March 2019, which had been called in to scrutiny, together with a report of the Strategic Director (Transformation) which sought approval to a Commissioning Framework to enable the Council to become an outcome-based commissioning organisation.




That the decisions of Cabinet, as set out in 1-4 below and the Recommendation as set out in 5 below, be noted:-


“1. That the definition of commissioning for Southend-on-Sea Borough Council be as follows:


the process by which we understand the collective approach needed in order to deliver the Southend 2050 outcomes; and what we need to do with others to make them happen.  In practice, this is not in-sourcing or out-sourcing but clearly ‘right-sourcing’.”


2. That the overarching principles of the Southend-on-Sea Commissioning Framework, be approved.


3. That, as part of a transitional period to an outcome based investment model, the Thematic Annual Procurement Plan 2019/20, be approved.


4. That the Market Position Statement for publication as set out in paragraph 5.7 and Appendix 4 to the report, be approved.


5. That the Constitution be amended as set out in paragraph 5.6 and Appendix 3 of the submitted report.”


Note: This is an Executive Function save that Recommendation 5 above is a Council Function.

Cabinet Member: Cllr Lamb
