Feedback wanted on best practice documents

Two umbrella groups are inviting sector feedback on the first draft of four publications intended to set out best practice in negotiation and procurement skills.

The publications, produced by chief executives body Acevo and the Development Trust Association, and funded by the Finance Hub, also cover VAT issues when working in partnership.

Eight seminars will be held across England between November and February to gather feedback from third sector leaders and commissioners from statutory bodies.

Orli Gorenski, who is managing the project, said: “We need a wide range of voices and experiences to inform the final draft of these publications. Then we will have a true reflection of best practice within the sector.”

Meanwhile, Acevo has hosted the first meeting of a new network of hospice managers.

Hospice chief executives and senior managers previously met through the Association of Hospice Management, but decided they would benefit from the umbrella group’s support.

Acevo already hosts a number of networks for chief executives in specific cause areas, such as crime, children, education and the arts.
