Written - The launch of the Welsh Assembly Government’s “Community Benefits Guide” guidance developed to ensure public procurement in Wales maximises its opportunity to benefit local communities
Today I am pleased to launch guidance which will support and encourage public sector procurers to secure ‘Community Benefits’, and realising maximum value for every pound spent of public money.
The public sector in Wales spends approximately £4.3 billion annually on external goods and services. Public procurement can make an enormous difference to the social, economic and environmental well being of Wales and the Welsh Assembly Government is continually looking at innovative ways to drive value. This guidance has been developed to ensure that local communities benefit from our procurement activity.
The guide is aimed at those involved in spending public money and will be invaluable in supporting them to help disadvantaged communities through training & employment opportunities and potential business for companies in Wales. The guide will help those involved in public procurement to build community benefits into their tendering processes and provides information on resources available. We have already seen the difference in over 20 projects across Wales – this guide will help innovative policy to become common practice in Wales.
A copy of guide is available on the Procurement Route Planner
