Video Guide: Introduction to Social Value in Procurement
Delivered as part of NEPO Business Club, Garry Stone from B2B:North provides an introduction to social value in procurement.
In this webinar recording, Garry Stone from B2B:North focuses on the requirement of public bodies to consider how the services they procure can deliver social value by improving the economic, social and environmental well-being of the area.
Embedding social value into the procurement process applies to local authorities, housing associations, NHS agencies (including clinical commissioning groups), central government departments and fire and police services.
The video also offers guidance on putting this into practice, including demonstrating how businesses can incorporate social value in their responses to tender questions, and the calculation of social outcomes into a measured value.

The webinar was delivered as part of NEPO Business Club, a free of charge programme to help businesses improve their tendering skills. Upcoming events are listed on the NEPO website.
