In April 2015, CES was commissioned by the Department of Public Expenditure and Reform to conduct an evidence review to inform a consultation process about a commissioning model for Ireland. This work required CES to do a ‘rapid review’ of the evidence base for commissioning in human, social and community services. Four different government departments are leading out on this initiative, they include the Department of Public Expenditure and Reform, the Department of Children and Youth Affairs, the Department of Health and the Department of Environment and Local Government.
