In its simplest form, commissioning involves an ongoing process of planning and purchasing of services to meet the health needs of local populations.

As a commissioning organisation, COORDINARE is involved in a continual cycle of developing and implementing services and related initiatives based on a planning, design, procurement, monitoring, review and evaluation cycle involving providers, communities and consumers.

Local opportunities

As part of the commissioning process, COORDINARE will release Tenders, Requests for Proposals, and Expression of Interest for the delivery of primary health care programs or services. Full details of these opportunities and related processes will be available through COORDINARE's electronic procurement portal.
