" The recent Public Services (Social Value) Act 2012 requires all public bodies to consider how they can improve the economic, social and environmental well-being of their local area through services they procure. This emphasis on using procurement to deliver social value is not entirely new but given the new prominence that the Act has given to the concept of ‘social value’, it is an opportune time to explore some of the barriers (both real and perceived) that still exist for local authorities, and to seek a better understanding of how they can maximise the social value achieved through every procurement exercise. This guide from BDO consultancy examines how local authorities can go beyond compliance by using the legislation as a catalyst to improve economic, social and environmental wellbeing and is informed by a survey of 95 local authority officers we have undertaken with the Municipal Journal (MJ)." http://www.bdo.uk.com/library/social-value
