Procurement at the RMWB is being transformed to proactively seek social and economically sustainable benefits for the region.
What does this mean for the construction sector?
It could mean increased recognition in bid evaluation for the ways in which you already contribute to the community. It could mean evaluation criteria that values and rewards local job creation, skills training, apprenticeships or work experience for barriered individuals; It could also mean bid criteria that values and rewards companies supporting the growth of other small businesses and social enterprises.
To ensure that the approach is built to specifically address the needs and priorities of our region, the RMWB is seeking your input. Association members are invited to participate in shaping the development of Social Procurement at a Construction specific Design Lab event in.
