Social Procurement Framework Annual Report released
Published: 2 December 2019
The first Social Procurement Framework Annual Report was released last week and shows that since April 2018 the framework has seen at least $32 million invested in more than 250 social enterprises.
The annual report also reveals that in the first six months of this year, $4.6 million was invested in 51 organisations that support people with disability.
Over the past financial year, $16.7 million was invested in Victorian Aboriginal businesses and organisations.
The framework is the only one of its kind in Australia and leverages government’s buying power to ensure organisations tendering for government work include positive social, economic and environmental outcomes, such as jobs for disadvantaged jobseekers.
The framework applies to all Victorian Government departments and core agencies, including infrastructure programs delivered by the Level Crossing Removal Project, Major Road Projects Victoria, North East Link Project, Rail Projects Victoria and the West Gate Tunnel Project.
