New report on how the Social Value Act is being used by local authorities

Procuring for Good is a new report published by Social Enterprise UK on how councils in England are using the Public Services (Social Value) Act.

Findings from Freedom of Information requests sent to all local authorities in England show that more councils than ever are considering social value when commissioning services: 1 in 3 (33%) now routinely consider social value in their procurement and commissioning, and 1 in 4 (24%) have a social value policy.

However, according this report the barriers to greater adoption will only be overcome by legislative change to strengthen the Act.
