Consultation: Have your say on Social Value in government procurement

Posted 12.04.2019

The 2018 Civil Society Strategy committed the government to use its buying power to drive social change. Central government will, in future, take better account of social benefits in the award of its contracts.

This will have the effect of levelling the playing field for all types of businesses including small businesses, voluntary and community sector organisations and social enterprises, encouraging employment opportunities, developing skills and improving environmental sustainability.

To give your views on how government should take account of social value in the award of central government contracts, you can respond to the consultation here.

The consultation closes on 10 June 2019.

BBO is having a significant impact on individual lives, supporting people to increase their confidence, independence and achieve their employment aspirations.
