Social Care Commissioning System: “Out of Whack!”

Social care commissioning system is ‘out of whack’, new publication led by CCPS finds.

CCPS‘s latest publication, “It’s Out of Whack!”, examines the potential of an ethical approach to social care planning and procurement. Eight industry leaders, including C-Change’s Sam Smith, share their perspectives in interviews conducted by journalist Pennie Taylor.

The report highlights how social care commissioning and procurement has a significant impact on the delivery of support services, sustainability of providers, the workforce and on people receiving support.

C-Change CEO, Sam Smith, outlines that the consensus view is that the commissioning system as it stands is unbalanced.

Transaction costs associated with our tendering processes are bureaucratic money-wasting enterprises … The disproportionate focus of our attention is stark. It tells us where the value is in the system, and I think it’s out of whack.

Sam Smith, CEO of C-Change
