Understanding Commissioning: a practical guide for the culture and sport sector

Understanding commissioning has been designed to help those working in the sector:

  • Influence and engage in strategic commissioning corporately and within the local strategic partnership where culture and sport has a significant contribution to make.
  • Commission culture and sport services to deliver these outcomes at the operational level.

It aims to provide culture and sport organisations with greater understanding of strategic commissioning, the opportunities and challenges, and some tools to operate more effectively in the context of modern public service delivery.

The IDeA has also developed a series of guidance documents to supplement the guide.
