Call for Action - Social Value Act for NI - Positioning Paper

Background

For many years the Social Enterprise sector in Northern Ireland has called for legislation to ensure that social value is included in public procurement.

Through the introduction of Social Enterprise NI, a voice for the local social enterprise sector, this call has intensified and we are delighted that in early 2017 it was confirmed that Northern Ireland will receive its own Social Value legislation.

This paper explores the context of Social Value legislation and sets out Social Enterprise NI’s key calls for an NI Social Value Bill. Background
