What is Social Value?

Social Value is about maximising the social, economic and environmental benefits through the public procurement process. Ultimately, this allows Government Departments and their stakeholders to find new and far-reaching methods to deliver on the outcomes of the Programme for Government. All tenders on Public Procurement contracts must allocate a minimum of 10% of the total award criteria to social value.
