The Outsourcing Playbook 2.0: Insights from the Cabinet Office

Earlier this month, the Cabinet Office published the Outsourcing Playbook Version 2.0. The updated edition includes broader focus than its predecessor, putting rules, guidelines and approaches forward, not just on outsourcing but more generally on service delivery, including insourcing and mixed economy sourcing and contracting. In this special webinar you will have the opportunity to hear from Meryl Bushell, Crown Representative, Cabinet Office, and Matthew Browne, Deputy Director of the Outsourcing Programme, Cabinet Office, as they discuss the launch of the new playbook. Along with the chance to put your questions to the speakers you will learn about:

  • The background to version 2 of the Outsourcing Playbook and why the changes have been made
  • How the changes to the playbook will be implemented, and ambitions for the guidance going forward
  • The implications for the wider public, private and not-for-profit sectors and how they can work with the Cabinet Office to embed these changes
