Social Value is a common topic in procurement conversations, but how do you apply Social Value principles in practice?
Conceptually, using procurement as lever to provide social value sounds great. But applying the theory and actually measuring how much is delivered, is a challenge for many organisations.
Social value must be part of pre-procurement planning in order to define meaningful outcomes to incorporate in specifications. These outcomes can be developed and tested through compliant market engagement, also ensuring the supply chain understands your requirements when they come to market.
In this webinar, Paula Jarvis MCIPS, Procurement Consultant and CIPS lecturer, discussed how to get to grips with the key social value themes early in the process as a foundation for success.
