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:
In delivering this Framework the Council, in line with Welsh Government Policy, is committed to pursuing ‘Community Benefits’ which will contribute to the social, economic and environmental well-being of the wider community. The Council believes procurement is key in helping to deliver a vibrant economy capable of delivering strong and sustainable growth. The pursuit of Community Benefits through tender exercises and subsequent contract ensures that the Council achieves the best value for the money we spend.
Examples of Community Benefits:
— Support youth diversionary activities either financially or with staff time.
— Support litter picks, community clean ups and initiatives either with equipment, financially or with staff time.
— Support landscaping or greening initiatives either with equipment, financially or with staff time.
— Support the on going refurbishment of Community Buildings managed by the 3rd sector.
— Support community events such as fetes, fayres, sports days either financially or with staff time.
— Contribute to community schemes.
— Work placements for secondary-school children and college students.
— Visits to primary schools to engage with younger children and raise awareness of equalities issues
The Community Benefits response will not be evaluated or scored as part of the tender process.
The Council appreciates that there is no guaranteed spend through the Framework and therefore, any proposals you make in your submission in relation to the implementation of Community Benefits, will not come into effect until the Council has secured funding and awarded your organisation a contract.
Community Benefits may not be allocated to your organisation during the delivery of any one contract or in any one financial year and may be an accumulative Community benefit relating to a number of contracts over the duration of the Framework. The Authority reserves the right to allocate a Community Benefit to your organisation, the value of which will be determined (linked) by the number and value of contracts awarded to your organisation.
