Social value to be incorporated into procurement decisions

MPs have voted in favour of the Public Services (Social Enterprise and Social Value) Bill

MPs have voted in favour of the Public Services (Social Enterprise and Social Value) Bill requiring that all public bodies should seek to improve local social, economic and environmental well-being by incorporating social value into procurement decisions.

 

Local authorities are now required to publish strategies in connection with promoting social enterprise, formulated and implemented with the participation of the community and public sector contracts must include provisions relating to social outcomes and social value.
