The purpose of target-setting is so that buyers are able to confidently score the differences between their suppliers’ submissions with regards to social value.
You should aim to select what you think is proportionate for the contract, but also what you are able to provide supporting evidence for. Value offered is in addition to the goods, works or services that are being procured, and any commitments made during the tender stage will form part of the contract once awarded.
If there is any doubt as to whether your organisation would be able to deliver this, or provide evidence, then the commitment should not be made.
If you are awarded work and these measures change, our clients usually have remediation where they will work with the supplier to deliver the same pound (£) social value by using different Measures. This approach does vary from client to client.
