Signposting to commissioning resources

This guide is for Clinks Members who want to do any or all of the following:

  • Find out more about commissioning
  • Understand the difference between commissioning and procurement
  • Prepare themselves to be ready for tendering
  • Read case studies and learn from others' experiences.

Twenty one documents or websites have been reviewed, and a brief description given of each one.
These are presented in five main sections:

  • General guides to commissioning (i.e. not specifically criminal justice-related)
  • Commissioning within criminal justice
  • Checklists and toolkits
  • Technical guidance and support
  • Research, opinion and think pieces.
