DPS for Voluntary, Charitable and Social Enterprises (VCSE’s) for ad hoc and lower value Goods, Services and Works

Reference number

DN525369

two.1.2) Main CPV code
  • 98000000 - Other community, social and personal services
two.1.3) Type of contract

Services

two.1.4) Short description

This DPS is intended to be a platform to lower the barriers of entry and encourage VCSE’s

(Voluntary, Charitable and Social Enterprises) and similar organisations such as Sheltered

Workshops (organisations employing disadvantaged workers) to tender for smaller and

lower value goods, services and works in and outside of the wider public sector, where

specific requirements and non-core work is required. There are real challenges in enabling

social value to be applied effectively primarily because organisations have conflicting

pressures on delivery, risk, scale and cost management which vary.

Orbit is passionate about building communities and investing in our communities. It is hoped

that the growth of social suppliers is increased by working with Orbit and similar

organisations across the housing and wider public and private sectors. There is an increasing

desire to buy from VCSE’s and this desire is being driven by organisational ESG

(Environmental, Social and Governance) approaches, a generational shift in expectations

along with the direction of travel of government led initiatives such as PPN's 0620 and 1120,

the industrial and civil society strategies and the Social Value Act.
