Use the Social Value Act (2012) to your Advantage and Create Barriers to
Entry for your Competitors
Successful procurements must identify the bidders who provide the best value and greatest benefit overall. Over the last few years this has been confused with lowest price for a specification.
The Social Value Act (2012) (SVA) requires public authorities "to have regard to economic, social and environmental well-being” when assessing best value. This means that the true local 'value add' can form part of the assessment, which gives bidders a huge opportunity to add value, as long as we engage early enough.
One of the most trusted frameworks for the quantification and evaluation of benefits is the Social Return on Investment model (SROI). Successful Project Managers think beyond time, cost and scope and engage with stakeholders before project initiation to identify the expected benefits, quantify them and plan their realisation. With SVA and the SROI model, vendors can help identify areas of additional social, economic and environmental benefit that result from their offer and use this for competitive advantage.
Our expert, Hugo Minney, will give us examples from his own experience in local government and the NHS of how the SVA and SROI have been used to identify and prioritise benefits and influence project selection. He will suggest ways in which bidders can engage with prospective buyers at a strategic level, and use this to build in additional value and even create barriers to entry for their competitors, all completely within the law.
