Event description

Description


Commissioning and Procurement: impacts on Irish civil society advocacy and service delivery.


Presenting the initial research findings from a scoping research exercise to examine the impacts of commissioning and procurement on Irish civil society advocacy and service delivery


Using qualitative methodology the research examined four social sectors, domestic violence, housing first, public employment services and community development to scope the impact of marketization in social sectors previously funded through public grants.

It examines whether more openly competitive funding processes reduce collegiality and collaboration amongst civil society organisations, how commissioning and procurement impacts on staff and services users and alternatives ways to support the work of civil society organisations.

The research was funded under the Irish Research Council New Foundations Programme and undertaken by Dr Mary Murphy and Dr Michelle Maher (Maynooth University) and Ann Irwin (Community Work Ireland).


This project was supported by funding from the Irish Research Council and the St Stephen's Green Trust
