Buy Social Model for services contracts
A Buy Social Model for services contracts has been developed by the Strategic Investment Board and Construction & Procurement Delivery (CPD).
The model sets a contractual requirement for a quantifiable number of targeted recruitment and training opportunities for New Entrant Trainees to be provided in public services contracts.
It sets out two key approaches:
- Approach A: is used in contracts that have no significant TUPE obligation and
- Approach B: in contracts with a significant TUPE obligation.
The model is to be included in all services contracts subject to Northern Ireland Public Procurement Policy (NIPPP) that have an anticipated value above £500,000 per annum, apart from IT and professional services.
