Devon Districts Procurement Strategy 2019-2022

Show all parts of this guide

7. Sustainable Procurement

In line with our commitment to delivering The Public Services (Social Value) Act 2012 and our own sustainable procurement policies we will make consideration of social value and sustainability in all tender processes, which will be defined by the corporate priorities of each District authority. The DDPA will use this definition to promote the positive social, economic and environmental benefits from the goods, works and services we purchase whilst also minimising any adverse impacts.
