A new partnership between the Social Value Portal and ESPO

A new partnership between the Social Value Portal and ESPO

We are delighted to announce our partnership with ESPO, who will be working with the Social Value Portal to incorporate social value into their procurement frameworks and enable their customers to obtain the benefits of social value when using the whole range of ESPO frameworks.

ESPO is one of the largest providers of public sector frameworks and is committed to working in partnership with stakeholders to drive value-for-money for the public sector through comprehensive procurement solutions. Embedding social value into their framework procurement model will support ESPO’s customers to deliver economic, social and environmental value.

The Social Value Portal is an online platform for managing social value from procurement through to contract management and reporting. Working with ESPO we have established a process for incorporating social value into their framework tendering model, which will be rolled out across their frameworks from Q4 2019. Our online solution makes it easy for ESPO’s customers to add social value to their tenders and provides an interactive tool for bidders to complete their social value submissions.

We are looking forward to this new relationship and supporting ESPO in achieving their social value ambitions.
