Decision status: Recommendations Approved

Is Key decision?: No

Is subject to call in?: Yes



Recommendations approved.


Reasons for Recommendation(s):

1.         Use of the Social Value Portal and TOM’s calculator (Themes, Outcomes and Measures) will provide a consistent, standard approach to the application and measurement, and ongoing contract management and reporting of the delivery of the SV offered.


2.         PPN 11/20 provides an opportunity – in appropriate circumstances- to reserve procurements by geographical area and/or to SME’s / VCSE’s but must be used appropriately.


Alternative Options Considered and Rejected:

1.         Not to use SVP and/ or TOM’s and to develop a specific bespoke Social Value Procurement Framework.


2.         Not to take advantage or effectively address PPN 11/20
