Under the terms of this contract the successful supplier(s) will be required to deliver Community Benefits in support of the authority's economic and social objectives. Accordingly, contract performance conditions may relate in particular to social and environmental considerations. The Community Benefits included in this contract are:
The Isle of Anglesey is committed to maximising Community Benefits from procurement activity. This will be achieved through the inclusion of specific clauses within procurement contracts known as Community Benefits clauses.
Community Benefits clauses are requirements which deliver wider benefits in addition to the core purpose of a contract. These clauses can be used to build a range of economic, social or environmental conditions into the delivery of council contracts.
Community Benefits clauses have, to date, been predominantly utilised in works contracts, however the revised Community Benefits Policy will ensure that Community Benefits are considered and included in all relevant contracts — including works, goods & services contracts.
The Community Benefits Policy will seek to:
— Support delivery of key council priorities
— Consider the inclusion of Community Benefits in all relevant procurement activities and maximise outcomes through the use of Voluntary Community Benefits
— Increase the Community Benefits outcomes generated through the inclusion of Community Benefits clauses within services and goods contracts
— Expand the types of Community Benefits outcomes generated
— Maximise the promotion of Community Benefits outcomes
The buyer considers that this contract is suitable for consortia.
