  • Title: FAQs | 3SC
    Descriptive info: What does 3SC stand for?.. Third Sector Consortium.. When and why was 3SC set up?.. 3SC was set up in 2009 to allow third sector organisations to compete for and deliver public services contracts in a climate of an increasingly challenging commissioning environment.. Where are you based?.. Our head office is based in the City of London, but we have two Relationship Managers who are regionally based (Yorkshire and Humber, and West Midlands and Wales).. How are you funded?.. We earn income from the contracts we win and manage.. How is 3SC structured?.. We are a social enterprise and a Limited Liability Partnership (LLP) made up of seven third sector organisations: National Housing Federation, Well UK, London Learning Consortium, Eden Project, National Youth Agency, QED foundation, and The Social Investment Business.. Do you make a profit?.. We do.. As a social enterprise we strive to make a profit, but it s what we do with that profit that makes us different.. How is that profit used?.. Because we are a social enterprise, we have clear rules about reinvesting profits back towards our social mission.. We use it to support the capacity-building of third sector organisations delivering frontline services.. Why should I work with 3SC?.. We seek to deliver public servicesthat are both high on value for money, and high on social value.. We adopt a consortium approach, although the contracting structure is that of a prime contractor/subcontractor.. We bring partners together to create proposals which meet the needs of the commissioner and the contract.. And when we win them, 3SC does the heavy lifting including management of performance and quality, reporting and financial processes.. Consortium working allows our partners to collaborate, innovate, and share best practices for collective improvement, rather than competing.. Who are your members?.. Our membership is non-exclusive and open to all.. It is comprised of predominantly third sector organisations (including charities, social enterprises, voluntary and community organisations) but we also have some private sector members as well.. Is there a cost involved in becoming a member?.. No, becoming a member of 3SC is free.. What does it mean to be a member?.. 3SC members are how we build supply chains.. The details you register with us will come up in a database search when we are considering our capability to deliver a particular contract.. We ask that you include details of your delivery capabilities on your membership profile, as 3SC is actively looking for public services contracting opportunities that can be delivered by consortia of 3SC s members.. We also extend our membership to organisations that do not presently have the capability to deliver services, but hope to in the future, and to individuals simply wanting to hear what we re up to.. In return, you ll receive regular  ...   manager.. It is decided on a case-by-case basis, but is typically between 10 to 15%.. How are you different than other Primes?.. There are many differences between us and other primes, but one important difference is that we will contract on smaller scales than other primes, which allows a broader range of organisations to participate in service delivery, allowing them a soft entry to the market.. What sectors do you work in?/What kind of tenders do you bid for?.. Currently we are focused on employment and skills, young people, and criminal justice.. As the health and social care markets open, we will start to develop opportunities in these areas.. How many contracts have you delivered?.. We are currently delivering or have delivered the Future Jobs Fund, the Work Programme, Access to Work, DWP Innovation Fund, DWP/ESF Support for Families with Multiple Problems, and the GLA/ESF Excluded from School programme.. What is the value of these contracts?.. The total value is over 50 million.. What is your annual turnover?.. This financial year our turnover will be approximately 7 million.. Do you conform to ISO standards?.. We currently have three ISO certifications: ISO 9001:2008 (quality), ISO 14001:2004 (environmental management, and ISO 27001:2005 (information security management).. How does 3SC add social value to public services?.. As a social enterprise, the financial value we create is invested back towards the third sector, rather than shareholders.. Our profits support the capacity-building of third sector organisations involved in services delivery, who are building solutions in their communities from the bottom up, as they are ultimately the experts in what will make a difference for their beneficiaries.. We are an enabler of locally developed solutions rather than a creator: we don t build something and impose it on third sector organisations, we enable the expertise of these organisations to reach their communities, ultimately bridging the gap between government commissioners and good quality service delivery.. What are the benefits for commissioners?.. Commissioners get to contract with a prime provider that understands the commissioning process, value for money, and targets, but is able to draw directly on third sector expertise.. Contracting with 3SC brings more capital into the third sector and is therefore able to increase the sector s long term impact.. We also maximise returns to the public purse and communities, instead of private shareholders.. What has 3SC achieved?.. We delivered the largest tranche of Future Jobs Fund funding nationally and secured Work Programme contracts for providers that wouldn t otherwise be involved.. We have built strong relationships with commissioners, policymakers and influencers, and delivered successfully as both a prime contractor and subcontractor.. We have challenged members, commissioners and policymakers, to think and act differently, and have worked to change the public services landscape in favour of the third sector..

  • Title: 3SC History | 3SC
    Descriptive info: Across the public sector, commissioners are aggregating contracts, making it harder for smaller organisations to participate in public service delivery.. While this has reduced contract management costs and enabled economies of scale efficiencies to be delivered, it means many third sector organisations miss out on delivery opportunities due to their scale rather than the quality of their service.. 3SC represents a simple yet effective solution to this issue.. 3SC was formed on 23rd July 2009 with the purpose of developing consortia to bid for and deliver large public service contracts.. Our partnership is comprised of: Eden  ...   Board is today comprised of a senior representative of each of these partner organisations.. By the end of our first year, 3SC had been awarded a Future Jobs Fund contract.. We went on to become the top performing provider across all three tranches, delivering contracts worth 36 million - the largest combined award of any provider and creating over 5,500 jobs through our supply chain of predominantly third sector organisations.. Since then, we ve gone from strength to strength, winning a number of Work Programme subcontracts and winning a prime contract for Access to Work in Wales..
