Challenge, Consult, Compare, Compete Best Value: an important step for the modernisation agenda, and an equally important step for anyone embarking on the new regime. In a process that seeks to define a local authority's most important role, Best Value: Law and Practice will guide you through the potential maze of all the Best Value requirements.

This work explores the entire process of Best Value, based on the legal framework and the best practice now developing in response to this important new duty. From preparation to implementation, over 1400 pages offer practical guidance on how to yield the most positive results, in the most cost effective and efficient way. Covering everything from the statutory regime to how to comply with all the criteria, Best Value: Law and Practice examines how to achieve continous improvement by offering real solutions to real problems.

  • Covers all the relevant issues which arise in the tendering and contracting of local authority services covered.
  • Explains the use of benchmarking and its role in Best Value.
  • Advises on the tactics which can be adopted by local authorities when dealing with the government Auditors and Inspectors.
