1. Jennifer Gordon, Corporate parenting and Commissioning Manager

2. No.  We don't use an IT system in that way.

3. Main contracts = 6 : + national contracts = secure care and fostering; + specific spot purchase contracts ie. those which might reasonably come within the intended national residential contract

4. Measurement is against the outcomes detailed in service specification.

4. yes

5. If by this you mean tendering to meet the outcomes of an individual then yes, we have done this.
