The New Local Government Network (NLGN) has published a document about use of the social value within procurement. The report is based on a workshop held in Birmingham in December 2016, with attendees from local authorities and the private sector. It looks at the background to including social value in procurement processes, as well as how its aims can best be achieved in practice.

Procuring for Good - a new report published by Social Enterprise UK paints the most comprehensive picture yet about how councils in England are using the Public Services (Social Value) Act.
