Delivering social value
In addition to the requirements for including social value in procurement through the Social Value Act (2012), we fundamentally believe in delivering social value. This is not an add on. Our supply chain is instrumental in the delivery of our services, but also have unique positions within our delivery chain to really add value to our community programmes. With two publications on how to do this, as well as running seminars to both public services and providers Orbit is a leader in this field.
We believe in making this tangible and meaningful for suppliers as well as our customers. Too often it is wrapped up in jargon. Information in this area should help describe what we mean, help you think through what you could provide and highlight good practice and those in our supply chain already doing a lot.
