Social value is a key requirement that often carries a high weighting in tender submissions and can be a differentiating factor when it comes to winning public sector contracts. In line with the central government social value model that emphasises the growing importance of social value, our experienced bid writers are providing specialist social value bid writing services. It is now a requirement for social value to be explicitly evaluated in all central government procurement, and a minimum weighting of 10% of the total score applied to ensure it has a sufficient influence to be a differentiating factor in the evaluation process.
Social value can take many forms, and it is important that the commitments organisations make are aligned to the overarching social value priorities of the purchasing authority and the needs of stakeholders. Our bid writers are experienced in identifying key themes and aligning your commitments to these, for example:
- Employment opportunities – such as job creation for people in the local community where the contract is being delivered including targeted initiatives to support people from disadvantaged backgrounds into the workplace.
- Protecting the environmental – initiatives for reducing your carbon footprint, such as using low emission vehicle fleets or using virtual meetings to reduce the need for site visits.
- Working with charities and voluntary organisations – to support local community projects such as regenerating green spaces or providing befriending services.
- Providing work experience – delivering a programme of work placements, paid for internships and employment taster sessions for residents in the local community.
Whatever the size of your organisation, we can provide dedicated social value bid writing support for the social value elements of your tender, either as a standalone service or as part of an end-to-end bid writing package covering all elements of the quality responses.
You will receive a fixed fee, no-obligation quotation for all our writing services, so that you know exactly what you are paying in advance, with no hidden costs.
