Productivity Commission release draft report

April 29, 2015 at 6:00 PM

The Productivity Commission has just released a draft report looking at ways to improve how government agencies commission and purchase social services. These include how agencies identify the needs of people who use social services, how they choose organisations to provide the services, and how the contracts between agencies and providers work. 

WAVES and Community Waitakere coordinated a joint submission to the inquiry in December last year. We haven't yet had a chance to the read full draft report yet (it is over 300 pages!!) But will keep you posted with our thoughts in due course. 

In the meantime, feel free to get stuck in and read the report here...
