Item 5 - Commissioning Performance Management Framework Review (G8/17)

Summary    

This paper sets out how London Councils will monitor and manage the performance of commissioned projects.  It builds on the Commissioning Monitoring Framework agreed by members of the Grants Committee at their meeting 20 February 2013 and further additions agreed at subsequent meetings. It includes new and enhanced elements drawing on members’ suggestions and the evidence gathered as part of the Grants Review 2015-16 and follow up work, including audit recommendations. The primary aim of the approach is to provide the Grants Committee the assurance it requires regarding the effective delivery of commissioned outcomes.
The report covers four distinct phases of the commissioning process:
1.    Design
2.    Application, assessment, awards and agreements
3.    Delivery
4.    Programme Closure and evaluation

A draft of this report was considered by members of Grants Committee at their meeting 23 November 2016, and revisions to the report are summarised in paragraph 1.4 and Table A.
