Each provider has documented their experience through a case study. This week sees the first 2 of the series to be published on GOV.UK. The providers ranged from an adult social care provider to forums supporting voluntary organisations.
Each of these organisations worked in partnership with a public sector organisation to either:
create a social value framework
follow a procurement opportunity
conduct a cross-organisational social value review
The aim was to help embed social value into their processes. The remaining case studies will be rolled out between October and December 2016.
Practical and applicable
The case studies provide real accounts of what can be involved at the forefront of generating social value. As well as giving a practical insight, the case studies are intended to serve as starting points for initiating new ideas and for sparking innovative thinking. Any aspects found to be of interest within the case studies can be applied and developed accordingly.
These case studies are most likely to be of interest to:
commissioners seeking practical solutions to help them embed social value across their organisation, or within a specific procurement opportunity
procurers looking for examples of best practice to follow
any party with an interest in finding out more about social value – as the journeys they describe showcase not only their successes, but their experience as a whole, including lessons learned
The providers who participated in the Social Value Implementation and Measurement Project include:
