SAN supports the SVUK’s work around Contract for Change
Social Value UK is launching a brand-new Thought Leadership Group called Contract for Change. This group will bring together volunteers to collaborate and embed the principles of social value into procurement and commissioning best practice.
This initiative is a major opportunity for the procurement profession to make a significant contribution to a national policy initiative which has implications at every level of society and within each of the organisations we work for and organisations we work with.
This Thought Leadership Group will harness the know-how from procurement and social value practitioners from across civil society, the public and particularly the private sectors to embed this principles-based approach to social value measurement in mainstream practice.
