Public Services Bill Gets Green Light

A Bill which could revolutionise commissioning and open up huge opportunities for social enterprises took a step forwards recently.

MPs in the House of Commons today voted the Public Services (Social Value) Bill through to the House of Lords, following a three hour debate.

If made law, the Public Services Bill would ask that councils commission services from organisations that deliver above and beyond, not by charging the lowest price and over servicing, but by charging a fair price while supporting the boroughs and communities in which they operate.  The Government’s annual spend on commissioning and procurement stands at £236 billion.
