Civil Service World has published an article on what social value means for the public sector. It explains how it interacts with the UN Sustainable Development Goals to compel commissioners and suppliers to widen their positive impacts through investment, transformation and regeneration, and that social value does not compete with ‘value for money’ – it is simply part of it. It goes on to highlight some examples of social value in the UK. “Thanks to rapid evolution in public policy, however, the UK government has never been in a better position to leverage its £284bn annual buying power to transform markets in favour of social value outcomes – including the transition to a Circular Economy,” it says. This is all part of PA Consulting’s report The Tangled Web: Rethinking the approach to online CSEA. Read about it here.
