Abstract

This report assesses the impact of the re-tendering of social care services on workforce morale and commitment in the voluntary sector, outlining the implications for national workforce policy and planning in Scotland. It summarises the results of research undertaken in three voluntary sector organizations who had all recently been involved in re-tendering exercises with local authorities. These organizations encompassed a provider that had lost several re-tendering exercises, a provider that had won several re-tendering exercises, and a provider that had won and also lost services through re-tendering exercises.
