A new report led by the Centre of Public Value Procurement and Wales Centre for Public Policy, both part of Cardiff Business School, sheds light on the crucial integration of social value into procurement practices.

Commissioned by the Welsh Government, the report showcases real-world examples of embedding social, environmental, economic, and cultural well-being — collectively known as social value — into procurement practices.

Drawing from seven case studies featuring organisations from various sectors, it provides a holistic view, encompassing both buyer and supplier perspectives.

Through conversational video interviews, representatives from organisations such as Caerphilly Council, National Highways, Bute Energy and others share firsthand experiences and best practices in embedding social value into public procurement.

The report coincides with the introduction of new legislation, including the Procurement Act 2023, the Social Partnership and Public Procurement (Wales) Act 2023, and the Health Service Procurement (Wales) Act 2024. Such legal frameworks signify a shift in public procurement norms, focusing less on process and more on delivering better outcomes for society and our communities.
