PSE365: The Importance of Social Value in Procurement

With the Social Value Model highlighting the need for lasting impact on individuals, communities and the environment to support the recovery from the pandemic, a diverse supply landscape could help to deliver the innovation in public services, manage risk and provide value for money while levelling up regions across the country.

However, as organisations continue to face unprecedented challenges in the wake of the pandemic, and social value becoming an integral element to build back better, how can public sector organisations navigate the challenges of social value and understand what it means for them in the procurement process?

In this panel discussion we hear from leaders on what social value means, the importance of social value in the procurement process and the wider benefits to communities through levelling up.

Making up the panel were:

  • Mark Francis, NHS England & NHS Improvement
  • Rachel Hartley, Training and Technical Team Lead, Slave-Free Alliance
  • Charlene Maginnis, Head of Policy Delivery - Supply Chain & Service Officer, Crown Commercial Service (CCS)
  • Rokneddin Shariat, Procurement Strategy Manager, Birmingham City Council

Webinar: Driving sustainability & value through technology end-of-life

End-of-life is often overlooked yet is equally as important to a digital strategy, but what happens to end-of-life technology? What is the impact on the environment, net zero targets? What is the financial impact, is value for money for the taxpayer simply discarded and destroyed along with the technology?

Join us on 13 September between 2:00pm-2:45pm where we look to address the lifecycle of a digital strategy with a focus on end-of-life using examples, achieving efficiency, increased sustainability and delivering cost savings.
