Post election future for outsourcing public services

08 April 2010

Whatever the outcome of the General Election, the strategy for delivery of and support for public services with constrained budgets is likely to change. This one day conference entitled 'Outsourcing the Delivery of Public Services' on 29th April is particularly timely.

Outsourcing the Delivery of Public Services’ is a one-day conference organised by City and Financial Conferences and supported by the National Outsourcing Association.  It will examine which service areas can and should be outsourced; the potential value that the private and third sectors can bring to the running of public services; different outsourcing models in use and an assessment of new initiatives.
Keynote speakers include Kevin Craven, MD Balfour Beatty Workplace Management, Mark Boyle, Director, The Shareholder Executive and Keith Davis, Director of the National Audit Office’s Cross Government Team.
Key Issues Addressed
Where are the boundaries between core and non-core government services?
What will the proposed creation of new government-owned outsourcing companies mean for the public sector?
What can suppliers do to help government embrace outsourcing?
Achieving value for money from outsourcing service delivery – the NAO’s perspective
The advantages that the private sector can bring to the running of public services and where outsourcing works best
The role of the voluntary and third sectors in the provision of service delivery
The "do’s" and "dont’s" of best practice outsourcing
Case Studies include:
1. The private and voluntary welfare to work contractor model: can this approach be applied elsewhere in government?
2. Outsourcing delivery in the health service – lessons from the last decade
3. Innovative outsourcing models between the public and private sectors
4. The use of social impact bonds for offender rehabilitation services: can the use of these bonds be replicated in other service delivery areas?
