Challenging how council services are run

Services that are included

Expressions of interest can be submitted for most services but there are exceptions. These exceptions are currently:

  • services provided in partnership with NHS bodies or by an NHS body on our behalf
  • services provided to named persons with complex individual health or social care needs
  • services which relate to the exercise of statutory powers, for example the determination of a planning application

A summary of our 'on-going' contracts is published on the Improvement East contracts website. This list is updated quarterly. The site does not include one-off contracts for goods, services or works.

You can use the list to find contracts that will be under review in the next 18 months. This may help you decide the services you'd like to submit an expression of interest for in the current year.
