Community Benefits in Public Procurement
Scottish National Sustainable Public Procurement
Training Programme
  • Contracting authorities may have a legal and
    policy basis for incorporating community benefit
    requirements into their procurement processes.
  • The Local Government in Scotland Act 2003 confers
    well-being powers on local authorities
    facilitating their scope to implement Community
    Benefit clauses in a way which meets their
    sustainable development responsibilities.
  • The scope for other public bodies will depend on
    their particular frameworks e.g. RSLs
  • Best Value or Value for Money remains the
    overarching principle.

The first question that we should ask when
developing any contract specification should be
Can we include a Community Benefit
clause?" John Swinney, Cabinet Secretary for
Finance and Sustainable Growth, March 2010
9
Types of Community benefits
  • Targeted Recruitment and Training (providing
    employment and training opportunities)
  • SME and Social Enterprise development
  • Community engagement

10
The Scottish Government Energy Assistance Package
  • There is a strong association between income and
    fuel poverty.
  • All households with an average weekly income of
    less than 100 have a high probability of being
    fuel poor regardless of other factors.
  • The Governments objective is to increase the
    opportunities for employment thereby increasing
    income and reducing poverty.
  • Maximising the employment potential of this
    contract for new labour market entrants and
    people who are disadvantaged in the labour market
    ,will reduce the number of Scottish Households
    that are fuel poor.

The Scottish Government Energy Assistance Package
  • In addition to providing more energy efficient
    homes to those who need them most, the contract
    included a commitment to
  • Creation of three Green Skills Academies in
    Scotland
  • Training and recruitment of new entrants to the
    employment market.

12
Procurement Process
  • Contract Notice (Advert)
  • Include Community Benefit as core to the subject
    matter of the contract
  • PQQ requirement
  • Demonstrate where you have delivered or been
    involved in the delivery of a skill relating to
    community benefits using specific examples e.g.
    training of new staff, training of existing
    staff, supplier development.
  • ITT requirement
  • Demonstrate the Community Benefit to be achieved
    through the delivery of this contract and the
    overall management process

Practical Hints
  • Map out the key people across the organisation
    who can contribute to scoping the social
    requirements
  • Identify the sustainable procurement champions
  • Choose social requirements you can monitor
  • Consider evaluation criteria and weighting
  • Think how payment relates to delivery
  • Think through sanctions for breach of social
    clauses
