Your quick guide to Social Value legislation

The world of Social Value legislation can be confusing, especially if you are just starting out. That's why our new guide tells you everything you need to know about Social Value legislation, from the 2012 Social Value Act to the Procurement Act 2023.


Social Value is used to ensure that suppliers to the public sector behave responsibly and sustainably, while offering good value for money.

Over the past decade, a series of legislative steps have embedded Social Value in both local and central government procurement.

But if you are just getting started with Social Value, you might still have some questions. Where did the concept originate? How is Social Value assessed? What legislation does your organisation need to know about?

At Social Value Portal, we want to make sure everyone understands how to drive meaningful, measurable good. With 82% of Social Value experts expecting their organisations to spend more time on Social Value over the next three years, it’s essential to be up to speed.

That’s why we have built a comprehensive guide to the past, present, and future of Social Value legislation, covering:

  • The 2012 Public Services (Social Value) Act: Understanding the Act that put Social Value on the map.
  • The Social Value TOM System™: How the leading Social Value measurement framework emerged.
  • The Social Value Model: A new step in guiding central government procurement.
  • Procurement Policy Notes 06/20, 05/21, and 06/21: Upping expectations for government suppliers.
  • Social Value in the NHS: How Social Value factors into the UK’s healthcare system’s sustainability drive.
  • The Procurement Act 2023: An overhaul of UK procurement.
