Event description
This half-day online seminar will address key tendering/contracting challenges for independent fostering agencies

About this event

Navigating through contracting, procurement, tenders and commissioning remains a significant challenge for independent and voluntary sector fostering agencies (IFA). In the course of this online morning seminar, our guest speaker/facilitator, Ian Brazier, Director, Skyrocket, and former Executive Director of The Foster Care Co-operative, will present his views and ideas on addressing these key issues, including:

  • De-mystifying the documentation
  • Understanding the evaluation process
  • Understanding and identifying risk and cost drivers
  • Constructing effective method statements
  • Understanding the basis of spot purchase
  • Making of sense of individual placements agreements (IPA) and individual placement contracts (IPC)

Ian Brazier is an ex-army officer (34 years service all over the world and latterly Commanding Officer at Northwood HQ) and a Fellow of the Chartered Management Institute with a Strategic Planning and Development Diploma from the Manchester Business School. He has wide-ranging experience in both military and family welfare issues and was Executive Director of The Foster Care Co-operative 2009-18. Ian has extensive knowledge of business administration within the fostering sector, including governance, business planning, and budgets and accounts. He is also very well versed in both company and contract law, which together with his procurement skills, makes him hugely successful when submitting tenders for admission to fostering frameworks.

Skyrocket is an NAFP training partner.

This event will be hosted on Zoom. Delegates will be emailed details of how to join a few days beforehand.
