Social Consideration Zone
Public procurement is focused on the inclusion of social considerations in public contracts where they are suited to the objective of the contract and would have the greatest impact.
Examples of social considerations that can be factored into procurement processes include employment and training opportunities for disadvantaged groups, disability access, promoting social inclusion, or the protection of the environment and combating climate change.
The Social Consideration Skills Development Zone will host a range of interactive training sessions providing insight into the key factors for consideration of social issues in public procurement.
Agenda details will be confirmed shortly.
