The 2013 Social Value Act has had a major impact on how the public sector buys goods and services. The act requires that public authorities consider wider social and environmental benefits when they choose suppliers, rather than basing commissioning decisions solely on price and quality.

Social value themes include:

- diverse supply chains;
- skills and employment;
- inclusion, mental health and wellbeing;
- environmental sustainability; and
- safe supply chains.

During this session, we will explore how transport and infrastructure contracts are demonstrating social value and how suppliers are reacting.

Speakers: CPC Project Services, Mott Macdonald, Turner & Townsend and Counter Context.
