Section IV: Procedure
Section VI: Complementary information
The Council intends to use the Social Value Portal in the evaluation of its social value requirements, and will frame its social value requirements by reference to the National TOMS Framework 2020. More information about the Social Value Portal and the National TOMS Framework is available here: https://socialvalueportal.com/national-toms/
Currently it is envisaged that the Council's social value requirement will be based on the following TOMS:
1) Local people in employment;
2) Opportunities for disadvantaged people;
3) Improved skills;
4) Improved employability of young people;
5) Reducing inequalities;
6) Social value embedded in the supply chain;
7) Carbon reduction and safeguarding the natural environment.
The Council is now inviting interested parties to sign up for a webinar to be delivered by the Social Value Portal on 10 December 2020 which will explain the Council's specific social value proposals for the procurement, along with details of the Social Value Portal and the National TOMS Framework 2020 in more detail.
