The Portal

Social Value Portal is an online solution that allows organisations to measure and manage the contribution that their organisation and supply chain makes to society, according to the principles laid out within the Public Services (Social Value) Act 2012. It allows organisations to report both non-financial and financial data, and rewards organisations for doing “more good” in the community.
We can measure environmental, social and economic activities and will help identify and measure the additional social value delivered through your project in terms that are meaningful to your customers.

UNDERSTANDING YOUR THEMES, OUTCOMES AND MEASURES

Target social value commitments to maximise your contribution by understanding the appropriate Themes, Outcomes and Measures that apply to your organisation and the communities in which you operate.

PROCUREMENT & TENDER SUPPORT

Whether you are conducting, or entering a bid or tendering process, Social Value Portal can provide guidance and support on assessing and evaluating social value, and how it may be aligned with local needs.

PROJECT MANAGEMENT AND DELIVERY

Social Value Portal provides an online management tool to assess social value across your projects and provide you with robust data outputs.
