6.2.1 In October 2012 Tayside Procurement Consortium (TPC) Steering Group approved a Community Benefits from procurement Policy which introduces the TPC approach intended to secure the maximum economic and social benefits from TPC Procurement within the current legal framework.

Community Benefits is the term used to refer to a range of ‘social issues’ including targeted recruitment and training, equal opportunities considerations, supply change initiatives, awareness raising programmes and community engagement activity which contribute more widely to sustainable procurement.

Sustainable procurement is defined as ‘a process that achieves value for money on a whole life basis and generates benefits not only to the organisation, but also to society and the economy whilst minimising damage to the environment’.

The Supplier shall deliver a minimum one (1) Awareness Raising Events or Curriculum Support Events per year associated with delivery of the Contract if their spend under the framework is greater than 50 000 GBP.
