Commissioning Agreement

Non-legal words

The contract between the public authority and the service provider from whom a care, support or supervision service has been commissioned. The contract will specify the activities the provider is expected to carry out and the amount of time they are expected to spend on those activities.

The commissioning agreement can be helpful when establishing whether the landlord might be called upon to provide complementary housing related support outside the scope of the commissioned service: if the landlord’s complementary role is more than minimal this is one of the ways that a Housing Benefit claim can come under the exempt accommodation rules.
