Context

Work is underway to transform our organisation, creating one that is financially sustainable, managing demand within available resources and growing our income.

Implementation of our new council wide operating model is underway.

How we commission our services will be core to our new operating model. Therefore, we will transform our strategy and commissioning capabilities, capacity and practices as well as our service delivery models.

Our strategic, commissioning and delivery practices will be embedded in our design principles - what we do, how we do things and how we work. Our practices will be evidence led, strategically aligned to our outcomes, focused on achieving high quality, cost effective service outcomes through robust performance management.
