Social Value

Delivering good quality public services within budget and offering added value is key. Social value in the procurement process is crucial to councils and is a keyway of helping improve local economic growth.

Social Value reflects an increased focus and ambition for a significant culture change across all public bodies, buyers and commissioning services to ensure that Social Value is not only adequately improved upon and considered in local government but is also incorporated as a requirement within central government’s procurement process.

This year’s Social Value Skills Development  Zone will provide attendees with a unique opportunity to participate in a range of interactive training sessions and workshops, showcasing Social Value initiatives and best practice within local government procurement.
