Evaluating the Social Procurement Framework by measurement and reporting
It is important that processes exist to measure the costs and benefits of social procurement to ensure value for money is achieved and substantiated. Sound measurement and reporting will enable evaluation of the framework over time, and inform future consideration as to the framework objectives and recommended approaches.
Government departments and agencies subject to the Standing Directions 2018 made under the Financial Management Act are required to report on their social procurement activities in their annual reports under this framework.
Reporting against the framework and delivery against the outcome priorities is required against individual contracts and at the department or agency level.
