Community Benefits are contractual requirements which deliver a wider social benefit in addition to the core purpose of the foregoing contract. Scottish Enterprise is committed to maximising Community Benefits from its procurement activities where relevant and proportionate. Accordingly, there is an evaluation criterion for Community Benefits for this Contract.

If community benefits are not included with the tender submission this will not prevent the tender from being considered but it will affect the score you receive in the evaluation.

The Scottish Government has developed a community benefits monitoring framework for public sector organisations to implement which will enable consistent and comparable data which tracks the impact of community benefits over time. Scottish Government Guidance on Monitoring Community Benefits.

The Supplier is asked to complete Appendix 5 detailing the community benefits that will be delivered as a result of this contract. Full details of the proposed monitoring process and reporting time-scales of the outputs should be supplied.
