Impact of Procurement Law on Social Enterprise

Impact of Procurement Law on Social Enterprise

Chris Brophy, partner at Capsticks Solicitors LLP, explains the impact does procurement law have on social and mutual enterprises. Brophy states that in order to enable a social or mutual enterprise to succeed, it needs “to give the existing work-force, service-user base and relevant stakeholders the time and opportunity to develop a new organization.”

Procurement law, which conducts the purchasing by public sector bodies and utility sector bodies of contracts for goods, works or services, will have an impact on social enterprises. Brophy notes that the Public Services (Social Value) Act 2012 will empower councils to look beyond just price to consider what is likely to best serve the needs of its locality.
