Developing Markets for Third Sector Providers

The Developing Markets for Third Sector Providers programme forms a key part of the Scottish Government support strategy for the Third Sector for the period 2011 - 2014 and will complement other initiatives and activities including the Procurement Reform programme and the Sustainable Procurement Action Plan.

The programme will be delivered by Ready for Business, a third sector led consortium composed of Ready for Business LLP, KPMG, Social Value Lab and MacRoberts LLP.

The programme, offers a unique opportunity to develop and embed a number of leading market development solutions, including the Public Social Partnership (PSP) model, Community Benefit Clauses (CBC) and the use of Social Value throughout public sector commissioning and procurement in Scotland.

It will build a platform to facilitate third sector engagement in service design to meet community needs and, at the same time, further increase the overall sustainability of the sector, whilst offering public bodies the opportunity to commission services efficiently and effectively.
