  • To work across GMCA teams and departments to increase knowledge and understanding of the framework as part of the implementation of the VCSE Accord
  • To work across the 10 Greater Manchester localities to look at Commissioning models which will be subject to change under the Integrated Care System transition arrangements, building partnerships and solutions to embed the Commissioning Framework in the new health and care system
  • Respond to new commissioning developments as a result of Integrated Care System and locality developments
  • To support and enhance existing local initiatives on good commissioning for the VCSE sector, working with VCSE infrastructure organisations to develop local solutions
