New Inclusive Supply Chain resource for Procurement Professionals
Social Value consultancy The Shared Value Business, in partnership with the Centre for Tendering has launched a new resource for Procurement teams tasked with diversifying supply chain.
The REACH: Inclusive Procurement Tool is a self-assessment framework underpinned by 6 measure-able behaviours which are evidenced to improve engagement with SME and diverse (under-represented) businesses.
REACH is a collaboration between inclusive procurement specialist the Centre for Tendering and social value specialist The Shared Value Business. The tool combines learning on inclusive supply chain practices, and guidance for embedding the government's new Social Value Model into everyday procurement practices.
On 10th September Professor Julia Rouse and Dr Paula Turner, Centre for Tendering, and Claire Louise Chapman FICRS, The Shared Value Business, will be delivering an hours live Q&A session explaining how REACH can be applied and the value it can add for procurement processes.
