Social Value is the new take on what was Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR), it has a lot more teeth, and all in the spirit of supporting local communities through giving back, doing good. So why is it now a significant part of procurement, having its own evaluation weighting; what is the impact on those bidding; and, how can authorities make sure they get the bang for the buck that was promised in tender submissions. We’ll discuss this and more.
