Social procurement is when organisations use their buying power to generate social value above and beyond the value of the goods, services or construction being procured. Social value refers to the benefits for all Victorians when the social and sustainable outcomes are achieved, through procurement activities.
The Victorian Government’s Social Procurement Framework is a policy that harnesses the government’s buying power to increase the value of goods, services, and construction by delivering social and sustainable outcomes that benefit all Victorians.
The Social Procurement Framework is a dual responsibility of the Department of Jobs Precincts and Regions (DJPR) and the Department of Treasury and Finance (DTF), and though this policy the Victorian Government is committed to supporting industry and suppliers to increase their awareness and understanding of the Social Procurement Framework.READY TO GET STARTED?

“Bringing in Ability Works employees to the design development proved invaluable to the project. Their unique skillset and fresh perspective resulted in clear requirements for accessible transport design by hearing from those who experience the challenges of existing non-accessible designs day in day out. This input will not just be of benefit to people with accessibility needs, but to all transport users in the City of Melbourne”
