ONE TO WATCH: Social Value Portal
PROJECT: Inspiring Social Value – Rewarding Good Business
Harrow Council engaged the Social Value Portal to pilot their social value procurement platform on a tender for the renovation of a council property in Harrow. The council wanted to award the project to the supplier who offered not only the best offer in terms of price and quality also with the strongest CSR programme.
The Portal was used to assess the financial value of different CSR solutions being offered by each bidder resulting in the award to the successful bidder who offered an additional value £440,000 (+43%) to society in addition to the core services being requested.
