Social Procurement

In June 2010, the Chief Minister announced the Government’s social procurement policy. Social procurement is where procurement is used to achieve social value in addition to the procurement outcome. It can take many forms, for example: including a social clause in a standard request for offer; quarantining a portion of a contract for a social benefit organisation; or purchasing directly from a social benefit organisation.

A panel of social enterprises that can deliver a range of services to ACT Government Directorates has been established. Panel members have been through a prequalification process that confirms the organisations are social enterprises, have the insurances required by the Territory and have the capacity to deliver identified services.

Panel Members

  • LEAD (Community Programs Association Inc)
