Final reading of Public Services (Social Value) Bill

The Public Services (Social Value) Bill currently going through parliament, if passed, will require local authorities to consider economic, social or environmental wellbeing whenever they procure a service. This could see commissioners and procurement officers look to social enterprises and other organisations that create social value to deliver a greater number of contracts. The third and final reading of the Bill will take place in the House of Lords on 28 February 2012.
