  5. Adding Social Value – How Procurement can Create Benefits for Society – Online Training Course


At Value Match we embed social value at the core of what we do.  Our 60-minute course provides a fresh and innovative perspective on how procurement can create wider benefits for society and move to a net zero economy.  The course is designed for procurement / bid professionals and broader stakeholders.

Notably, since January 1st, 2021, the UK central government has adopted a new Social Value Model.  All organisations looking to procure and bid into central government are required to include Social Value requirements with a minimum of 10% of the total award criteria used to determine the successful bidder.
