answer text <p>We are extending the application of the Social Value Act in central government to ensure all<br>major procurements explicitly evaluate social value where appropriate, rather than just<br>‘consider’. This will ensure central government contracts take account of areas as diverse as<br>the employment of disabled people, the use of social enterprises, the prevention of modern<br>slavery and the protection of the environment</p><p>We are developing a simple, systematic approach to bring departments up to a consistent,<br>minimum level of operating, and ensuring additional reporting does not add complexity or<br>cost to the procurement process, restrict markets or exclude small businesses from<br>government contracts</p><p>Government is committed to train all 4,000 commercial buyers on how to take account of<br>social value and procure successfully from social enterprises - training for government<br>commercial staff will help unlock more opportunities for voluntary, community and social<br>enterprise organisations. We will also require all departments to report on the social impact<br>of major new procurements.</p>
