Commissioning for Growth Conference
Mary Ward House Conference Centre, 5-7 Tavistock Place, London, WC1H 9SN
Matthew Jackson, Deputy CEO of CLES joins the plenary session on “Meeting the Measurement Challenge” at the Commissioning and Procurement for Growth Conference organised by City View.
A new wave of commissioning and procurement is rising inside companies, councils and key public organisations acknowledging that every economic, business and procurement decision should be measured not only by its price, but by its social impact. The Social Value Act of 2012 has provided an opportunity to move away from low price, short term procurement.
It is now recognised that simply opting for the lowest price can lead to hollowing out of local or business capacity, is not holistic in approach and often lacks inclusion growth measures, leading to adverse long term social impacts.
This programme aims to explore and identify the best and most effective social impact practice, disciplines and measurement tools available to provide an informed basis for better commissioning, procurement and investment.
