Social procurement is high on the agenda of most organisations at present. While headway is being made by many, others are still struggling with the practicalities of how to engage social enterprises. In this session you will have the opportunity to explore such things as how you develop RFPs or go to market with social enterprises, what special criteria, if any, you need to include and what your evaluation criteria might look like.
This event will be facilitated by Mark Daniels, Executive Director Buyer Services, Social Traders.
