Under the terms of this contract the successful supplier(s) will be required to deliver Community Benefits in support of the authority’s economic and social objectives. Accordingly, contract performance conditions may relate in particular to social and environmental considerations. The Community Benefits included in this contract are:

The commitment to deliver Community Benefits through 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.

The information submitted in the Community Benefit question is for information only and will not be scored in the evaluation process. However, failure to provide a Community Benefits Plan in the required form will result in a Tendering Organisation’s Tender Response being rejected.

For the avoidance of doubt the Community Benefits are a non-scored, non-core requirement and must be delivered in a cost neutral way. Therefore Newport City Homes does not anticipate incurring any additional costs as a result of the delivery of any Community Benefits. If there are considered to be any additional costs to delivering Community Benefits full details must be provided as part of the Community Benefits Plan for Newport City Homes to consider.
