Procurement within the Council is viewed as a key driver for delivering the organisations sustainable development commitments. The Council is striving to develop a vibrant Welsh economy capable of delivering strong and sustainable economic growth by providing opportunities for everyone within Wales. Sustainable Development means ensuring that our actions contribute on the round of social, economic and environmental well-being now and in the future; improving the environment, building stronger communities, reducing social exclusion and poverty and encouraging the development of the economy.

The Council’s commitment to deliver ‘community benefit’ outcomes from our procurement activity is designed to ensure that wider social and economic issues are taken into account when spending public money. The intention is to achieve the very best value for money in the widest sense.

Consequently, as part of their response, tenderers are asked to demonstrate their previous approach / experience in delivering community benefits and are required to submit a Method Statement in the form of a Community Benefits Plan setting out how they will incorporate and deliver ‘community benefits’ through this appointment.

This will be a non core requirement and therefore will not be included within the evaluation of your proposal however if community benefits are identified then these may be included as part of the overall contract.
