The new Procurement Policy affects your company - are you ready?

Since the beginning of January 2021, all companies bidding for public contracts need to demonstrate the social impact they would deliver as part of their contract
This is due to the Procurement Policy Note 06/20, which is part of the enhancements made to the Social Value Act.
What does this mean for your company – and how can your company leverage these changes to stand out from the competition?
whatimpact’s unique Social Impact Reporting tool helps you calculate and evidence your company’s social impact effortlessly. 

New Procurement Policy Note – a threat or an opportunity?

  • The new Social Value Act enhancements are a mandatory requirement for all companies bidding for public contracts – this concerns businesses of all sizes in all industries.
  • Social Value has a lot of weight in the selection process; it forms a new score of 10-30% in the evaluation criteria for tender bids.
  • Corporate policy won’t be enough anymore. You must be able to evidence the social, economic and environmental benefits for the entire life cycle of the contract.
  • Without clear impact and evidence of it, companies might not only lose tenders but also lose contracts they’ve already won.
  • The competition has increased, so it is more important than ever to stand out from the crowd.
  • SMEs and Social Enterprises have a big advantage: the cheapest bid won’t be the best anymore. What is more attractive is a company that can demonstrate a high-quality delivery of a contract that delivers social value.
