In November we blogged that we were looking at best practice in commissioning research, and asked Gavin Freeguard to help us with that.
After getting a lot of helpful comments and conversations (thank you), Gavin put what he learned into a document that is helping us shape our commissioning process. While aimed at a relatively small organisation, a lot of the general lessons and thinking should apply to organisations of any size.
This can be read online and as a pdf on our research site.
We will announce a few calls for proposals over the next few weeks and give this process a go. At the end of the projects, we will do a follow-up post on what we’ve learned.
