Ministry of Justice Consultation on the Industry Standard Partnering Agreement
Clinks’ interest in the Industry Standard Partnering Agreement (ISPA) stems from our role in supporting and representing the wider voluntary sector; we are not a potential provider of services under Transforming Rehabilitation (TR). The ISPA is the key practical document for voluntary organisations who are considering entering the new supply chains. Although it is designed to govern subcontracting arrangements in any future Ministry of Justice (MoJ) contracts, it has been keenly awaited with specific reference to TR since the start of the competition.
Clinks has therefore taken a keen interest in the ISPA and its role in ensuring that the sector is able to participate to its full potential in the new rehabilitation landscape, in line with the Government’s original vision of “opening up the market to a diverse range of new rehabilitation providers, so that we get the best out of the public, voluntary and private sectors, at the local as well as national level”
