How are government commercial supporting social value?


26th May 2022
12pm - 1pm

The Public Services (Social Value) Act came into force on 31 January 2013. It requires people who commission public services to think about how they can also secure wider social, economic and environmental benefits.

This session will explore the implementation of the Social Value Act at a central government and departmental level.

  • We will provide an introduction into what is meant by social value and the social value model.
  • We will explore how the social value model works at a departmental level, highlighting real life examples showing what has worked well and outlining any challenges.
  • We will also explore the devolved perspective with a particular focus on the strategic investment board developed in Northern Ireland.
