*New Research* Social Value in UK Central Government

InSocial Value in UK Central Government report cover TechMarketView’s latest report from the PublicSectorViews team – Social Value in UK Central Government – we have sought to understand how the leading suppliers of IT services to UK central government are responding to the new procurement requirements as defined in the UK Government’s Procurement Policy Note ‘taking account of social value through government’s commercial activities’.

Suppliers profiled in this report are CapgeminiCapitaAtosFujitsuSopra Steria, IBM, DXC Technology, AccentureAmazon Web Services, and CGI. We include in-depth analysis of their activities against the five themes within the Government’s social value procurement policy, namely Covid-19 recovery; tackling economic inequality; wellbeing; equal opportunity; and fighting climate Change

We look at the companies’ corporate approaches but also determine how they are translating that approach into regional or client specific initiatives. Within the analysis we highlight how some suppliers’ approaches stand out compared to their peers. We also consider how an evolving Government approach will impact suppliers. Importantly, with the policy requiring departments and agencies to seek additional social value from suppliers via individual contractual arrangements, we identify the ways in which suppliers can deliver contract-specific social value for their clients across the five themes.
