Oxfordshire Inclusive Economy Partnership

15/12/2023 - Oxfordshire Inclusive Economy Partnership

To confirm the council’s commitment to Oxfordshire Inclusive Economy Partnership’s charter pledges, namely:

         As a buyer we pledge to assess and account for the social value that a supplier can offer the local community, alongside our assessment of the economic value/financial cost of the contract.

         As a buyer, where compatible with procurement law and subject to best value requirements, we pledge to buy goods and services from purposeful local organisations, including small and medium-sized enterprises, social enterprises, and cooperatives wherever possible.

         As a supplier we pledge to support our employees to volunteer on local community projects.
