Stockton Borough Council wins National Social Value Award
Stockton-on-Tees Borough Council have received a National Social Value Award at the recent National Social Value Conference held 20/21 November 2018.
NEPO is delighted that one of its Member Authorities has been recognised nationally for their work in this area, especially as the project was delivered as part of a regional project undertaken by NEPO and its Member Authorities.
The award submission showcased how Stockton worked closely with NEPO and a range of internal stakeholders to embed social value in the procurement of CCTV. Stockton recognised that many of the potential bidders would be SMEs and so particular focus was made on ensuring instructions were clear, simple and concise. In addition, a bidder event was organised to support bidders in their submissions.
The successful bidder has committed to delivering
- an additional 39% social value against a total contract sum of approx. £234k
- 2 new full-time positions
- 39 weeks of apprenticeships
- £10,000 spent locally and £1,000 donated to local projects
The judging panel were particularly impressed by how Stockton reached out to suppliers and helped them prepare for the tender.
