NEWS: Draft Social Partnership and Public Procurement (Wales) Bill
Draft Social Partnership and Public Procurement (Wales) Bill – is draft legislation to strengthen and promote consistency in the Welsh system of social partnership, to deliver fair work outcomes, and to ensure socially responsible public procurement. The consultation closes on 23rd April 2021.
The consultation is important for us as Community Woodland Group members to underline the need for consolidation of social partnerships and the of consistent application of the Wellbeing of Future Generations Act across Wales, leading to a connected system of social partnerships at local regional and national levels. Another aspect it is going to be important for us to support and advocate for is the need for socially responsible public procurement, where local and social benefits are considered as part of value for money exercises in place of lowest cost exercises.
