NSVC22 on demand: A decade of social value

The Social Value Act was passed into law in 2012. It requires all public sector bodies to consider social value in their procurements. There is no doubt that it is bringing about dramatic change and shifting the relationship between the public and private sector. However many of the ambitions of the Act have not come to pass, such as more work for SMEs or the 3rd Sector. Whilst some sectors can justifiably pat themselves on the back, can we honestly say it has been a success?

Chaired by Arnab Dutt OBE, a panel including Chris White, Jane Cumisky, Stuart Love and Owen Little reflected on the past decade of social value, before discussing the challenges that lie ahead.
