PPN 01/21 - Scoring Social Value

The Executive has approved this Policy which mandates that from 1 June 2022 tenders must include a minimum of 10% of the total award criteria to social value.

This minimum weighting will apply to the thresholds set out in the Public Contracts Regulations.  That is service contracts valued above £138,760 and construction contracts valued above £5,336,937.

The policy provides a framework of indicators which Departments can draw on, as is relevant to the contract at hand. These indicators are linked to the Programme for Government outcomes.
