UK Government Ramps Up Social Value Requirements

The UK Government has released Procurement Policy Note PPN 06/20 taking account of social value in the award of public contracts.

The changes mean that, from 1st January 2021, central government will now be required to go further than the Public Services (Social Value) Act 2012 to ensure that all major procurements explicitly evaluate social value, where appropriate, rather than just consider it.

The PPN recommends that a minimum weighting of 10% of the total score should be applied to social value in all public procurement contracts.
