A national network of 22 local authorities has selected Made Open with its partner Perform Green to join a framework agreement for the Cooperative Council’s Innovation Network (CCIN).
The Cooperative Council’s Innovation Network is a collaboration between local authorities committed to “transforming the way they work with communities”.
As one of only 16 UK suppliers to be selected on this framework, Penryn-based Made Open will be eligible to help the CCIN meet the unprecedented challenges facing the public sector and local communities.
Robert Woolf, director of Made Open, said: “It’s a terrific achievement to be recognised nationally for our work in public service transformation, and as an influence in collective impact.
“We have for many years been committed to finding better ways of working with local authorities and local people to create more effective communities. We look forward to helping the network meet their challenges.”
Toby Rhodes, innovation and business change director for Perform Green, said: “We are really excited to be partnering with Made Open and look forward to collaborating closely with them and with CCIN Councils to help create significant change.”
CCIN membership is from across the UK including local authorities from the following areas: Bassetlaw, Cardiff, Croydon, Edinburgh, Glasgow, Islington, Knowsley, Lambeth, Liverpool, Milton Keynes, Newcastle, Newcastle-under-Lyme, Norwich, Oldham, Plymouth, Rochdale, Salford, Sandwell, Southampton, Stevenage, Sunderland, and Telford & Wrekin.
The agreement starts this month and runs for two years, with a potential one year extension. Made Open is the primary contractor.
